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.

 

Senior gala

Monday 18th November is our senior gala night. There will be no sessions for width swimmers.

All length swimmers are invited to compete in a fun internal gala. We're dividing the club into three teams who will compete against each other for the bronze, silver and gold medals.

Changing rooms will be open from 6, with the event aiming to start at 6.15. Please note that we can only allow one spectator per swimmer because of how busy it's going to be.

 

Party & merchandise

There is still time to get your Christmas party tickets for Saturday 7th December, and up until the end of November we're taking orders for club merchandise - hoodies and t-shirts. Ask the payment desk or register for details.

 

Friday 22nd November

 

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.
