Swimming

Welcome to Swansea University Swimming Team!

The team caters for swimmers of varying abilities, from those who wish to train and race at a competitive level to those who wish to keep fit and be social. Our aim as a team is to provide a platform for everyone to enjoy their swimming, whether that means enabling swimmers to perform at national levels or revel in the social side of the sport.

In recent years the team has grown in size and strength enabling us to enter A, B and C teams competing in Divisions 1, 2 and 3 of the BUCS team championships respectively. We also send swimmers to both long and short course individual BUCS championships. 

Our swimmers now benefit from Swim Wales membership (£34) allowing members to compete in open meets throughout the year.

All our social events are organised by social secs Adam and Frankie.
