Our club was founded in 1978 with the basic idea of making swimming ‘open to all’ of the younger members of our local community. 40 years later we’re still going strong, with our team of dedicated volunteers providing quality lessons and training sessions to over 200 swimmers.

 

We swim in the 4 lane 25m pool in Boldon School Sports Centre and the pool in Boldon Community Association. Our membership ranges from non-swimmers (age 5 and over) to the Masters League swimmers (with unlimited age range). Our main sessions run on Mondays when the majority of swimmers attend one of ten sessions with varying abilities. We hold additional teaching and training sessions on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

 

Holiday hours

The last session before Christmas will be Thursday 20th December. There will be no sessions after this until the new year.

Club night restarts and sessions are all back to normal on Monday 7th January.

We're currently waiting for an answer to see if we can get a training & lane teaching (John's lane) session the week before - we'll announce it here and at sessions if we do. 

 

Our competitive members regularly swim in local and regional galas in the North East, and in some national galas around the country.

 

We are affiliated to Swim England and are an affiliated member of the Royal Lifesaving Society.

 

Our club has held both Swim England's SwimMark accreditation (formerly Swim21) and the Sport England Clubmark accreditation since 2009.
