The Swimming club at Northumbria are a friendly and welcoming club. Based out of Sport Central’s 25m pool, the club have access to coached sessions throughout the week including use of the sauna and steam room. The sessions vary between mornings and afternoons giving you the flexibility to meet the demands of your course studies.

Those keen to compete on behalf of the university have access to enter any of the following BUCS events that take place throughout the year: BUCS Long course, Short course and Team events.

We also have a very successful Para-Swimming contingent as part of the Swimming club. Previous & current members include Taka Suzuki (Japan), Jack Bridge, Josef Craig & Claire Cashmore (England) to name a few. They all train together creating a great cohesive environment.

On top of all the fun you will have in the pool, you will enjoy a variety of social events organised by the club making it the perfect opportunity to play the sport you love while having a great time and making new friends.
