We provide great opportunities for swimmers of all abilities, from swimming lessons within our very own learn to swim scheme, through to competitive swimming training within our squad programme. Opportunities do not stop there however, swimmers are able to become involved in masters swimming and water polo.
The club follows the principles of Long Term Development and focuses entirely on the development of the skill in a fun and friendly swimming environment.

We are extremely proud of our historic achievements – including 5 Olympians to date!
