Find a club and become a competitive swimmer

Get Started

Whether you are an aspiring athlete with disabilities or not the process of becoming a competitive swimmer is the same.

Looking for adult swimming clubs?

If you are over 18 years of age and looking to join a club you need Masters Swimming. Head to our Masters site here to find our more.

Start at swimming lessons

At swimming lessons in your local pool you should follow the Swim England Learn to Swim Programme. You start by earning swimming badges and certificates for Stages 1-7.

The real focus on becoming a competitive swimmer is when you take Stages 8-10. By the time you reach Stage 10 you will be completing a set lasting 1600m.

Join a club

Next step is to take your competitive swimmer aspirations to the next level. Join a Swim England affiliated club, and become a member of Swim England through the club.

This will ensure you get expert tuition and guidance. It is the same if you want to get into open water swimming. Find your nearest club by using our English Clubs look-up below.

Competitive Swimming Clubs Look-Up

Type your area in the search box and it will filter as you type. Or you can choose to list up to 100 clubs at a time on the page and look through.

We have listed website addresses of clubs as the first contact point. This is because clubs can operate out of more than one pool and can have multiple contact details.

If you are one of Swim England’s competitive swimming clubs and not listed here, contact the digital team for inclusion.
