HISTORY - MISSION - ETHOS
Wandsworth Swimming Club is based at Putney Leisure Centre in West London. The Club has over 200 swimmers from six years old to open age group.
The Club aims to be one of the best competitive swimming clubs in West London. It has existed for over 100 years and achieves a good mix of fun, enjoyment and hard work in our endeavour to make our swimmers the best that they can be.
The Club currently swims in the First Division of the London Arena League and selected open meets in the area. We operate 90 hours of water time per week across our 8 squads.
As a SwimMark accredited club, we strive to create the best possible swimming experience for all our members and have developed our squad structure to follow carefully designed talent pathways. We believe this fosters a lifelong participation in swimming for all our athletes and provides a mentoring system to maximise their potential.
We strive to instil a lifelong love of swimming and build a program of excellence in training, team unity, character development and family support where every swimmer can achieve their potential and compete at the highest level.
A pathway to suit every athlete
Our club competes in the First Division of the National Arena League and offers our swimmers a programme of open meets throughout the year. The Club supports the Crystal Palace Club Network by integrating its performance squads into those sessions run at Crystal Palace.
Competitive Swimming Pathway
In 2016 we introduced a competitive swimming pathway for swimmers 11+ who are interested in gaining and maintaining swim fitness but are not able to commit to the level required for the club's performance squads. This allows our athletes flexibility to continue a swimming pathway to suit their lifestyle and commitment to the sport.
