ASA history at SportPark Library

The ASA Library is located at SportPark in Loughborough, the home of British Swimming and the ASA.

For many years the ASA library, which used to be situated at Harold Fern House, has been tucked away in boxes, on shelves, out of the way for many to be able to see or research.

With the move to new premises in 2010, British Swimming and the ASA moved its library to a new permanent home situated on the first floor of Pavilion 3 at SportPark.

The old Minute Books, Handbooks and Swimming Times along with other books associated with our sport have been catalogued, as have old swimming programmes, newspaper articles, pictures, videos, medals and much more going back into the last two centuries. 

We would like to offer a service to people researching our sport to be able to come along and visit us to help with the research into books, degrees, or perhaps the history of their club.
