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 about 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.

 

Update 02/11: We have received official notification that the pool will be closed for the lockdown period starting after the session on Wednesday night. All sessions from Thursday 5th forward are now cancelled, with plans to restart the same limited sessions as soon as the pool opens again (currently scheduled for Thursday 3rd December, but we will stay in touch and let you know if anything changes).

Applications:
We aren't currently accepting any new swimmers into the club (as at the moment the spaces that we have are needed for our existing swimmers), but you can register your interest to be contacted when we open again here: https://bit.ly/3cgDr4R

 

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.
