UCL Swimming Club is an exciting club that provides students with the opportunity to socialise, train and compete as part of UCL's swimming team. Founded in 2012, in our first couple of years we have already proven ourselves to be a successful and growing club, having been recognised by UCL union who awarded us for two years running with the shield for 'Most Improved Club'. 

The club is open to all students - UCL, RUMS, fresher, postgraduate, and all swimming abilities - whether you swim competitively, for fitness, a beginner or just socially! Our main aim is to provide a club that is friendly and fun with a great social side, bit of banter and strong team-spirit all centred around improving swimming ability, performance and achievement!

We have two tiers of membership for the year: fitness (£60), competitive (£80). Fitness swimmers have around 4.5 hours of training per week and Competitive swimmers have 7 hours, including land training. 

Training is graded accordingly to ability so you'll be with similar swimmers and never feel out of place. For those who take their swimming seriously and want more training, professional coaching and the opportunity to compete at regional and national level there is also our Competitive Squad Team. 

We know the importance of a cohesive, unified club and so we also have an extensive social calendar with weekly sports nights, regular social events and two dedicated social secretaries oversee all things fun!
