Swimming

The swimming section is the largest sports section at the British Club and we are still growing. The Club has teamed up with Total Swimming and provides excellent coaching for all levels and they really make a difference to stroke technique and endurance. We start with Learn to Swim, progressing through to the Barracudas squads and then on to our
Masters Section.

It is not all about swimming. Through swimming at the British Club many friendships are formed and at the swim meets the team spirit is clear to see; team mates screaming at the side of the pool supporting their fellow swimmers and the relay teams working together.

One of the nicest things about the swim meets is watching the older members of the Barracudas helping and supporting the younger members who are just starting their competitive swimming journey.

For the more ‘experienced’ swimmer, as well as the swimming, the Masters love to socialise. They meet once a month for a club breakfast and many stay on to ‘rehydrate’ after a mid-week training session. It’s a great way to make new friends. The Masters also swim competitively and they have an annual tour to the Gili Islands.

So why not come and join us?
