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.


Photos are now available for awards night and the junior gala in the website gallery, available from the club members area. Please tell us what you think of them!


Holiday sessions

During the summer holidays there are no sessions for width swimmers. For length swimmers:

Mondays 7-8pm, open to all length swimmers
(anyone who normally swims at any time between 6.30-9pm on Mondays)

Wednesdays 7-8pm, competitive team training session

Thursdays 7-8pm, competitive team training session

All sessions are back to normal from Monday 2nd September.


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.
