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 from awards night are now available in the members section.

Photos from the junior gala will be available next week (after we've had time to sort through the 1550 photos that we took!)

 

Holiday hours

The last session of term will be Thursday 19th. There is no session on Friday 20th. In the holidays there will be no sessions for width swimmers. For length swimmers:

Mondays 7-8pm          23rd & 30th July, 6th Aug
Wednesdays 7-8pm    25th July, 1st & 8th Aug 
Thursdays 7-8pm        26th July, 2nd & 9th Aug

The pool shuts on the 13th August for maintenance for the rest of the holidays so we're taking a break.

All sessions are open to anyone who swims lengths (that's anyone who normally swims between 6.30-9 on Mondays). Wednesday sessions are open to anyone from Graham's sessions who normally attend Wednesdays as well.

Club night restarts and all sessions will be back to normal on 3rd September.

 

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

Club night restarts on 3rd September.

 

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.
