Our club was founded in 1978 with the basic idea of making swimming ‘open to all’ of the younger members of our local community. Nearly 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.

 

Easter holiday hours

Sessions run as normal up to and including Thursday 29th March. There are no sessions on bank holiday Friday or Monday. During the holidays there won't be any sessions for width swimmers.

For length swimmers (open to anyone who normally swims between 6.30 - 9pm on Mondays) we're running sessions 7-8pm on these nights:

Wednesday 4th April
Thursday 5th April
Monday 9th April
Wednesday 11th April
Thursday 12th April

Sessions are back to normal on Monday 16th April. 

 

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.
