Welcome to Swansea University Swimming Team!

The team caters for swimmers of varying ablities, from those who wish to train and race at a competitive level to those who wish to keep fit and be social. As a team our aim is to provide a platform for everyone to simply enjoy their swimming, whether that means enabling swimmers to achieve thier upmost potential, or revel in the bustling social side of the sport. 

In recent years the team has grown in both size and strength, allowing for us to enter A, B and C teams into divisions 1, 2 and 3 of the BUCS team championship respectively, as well as sending swimmer to both long and short course induvidual BUCS championships.

Socials are a really great way for the whole team to bond outside of the pool and ensure a great time for everyone involved. As well as our standard Wednesday nights, we host a wide range of dry socials and fundraising/charity events through out the year. All our social events are organised by social secs Alice and Matt.
