Membership & Sessions

Due to the closure of student central and the consequent a sense of funding, we adopted a pay-to-play mode where this year’s fee is divided into 2 parts.

The membership fee is a joining fee to support our activities and gain access to our social events. It costs £5 annually for students and £40 for affiliate members.

A session fee is also applicable should you wish to swim with us. Sessions until 27 Feb 2022 is now available to purchase. The price is £52 in total for the 13-week period (£4 per 1.5hr session / ~£16 per month). A 3-week break (i.e. 19 Dec, 26 Dec, 02 Jan ) during Xmas is not charged.

Once you have purchased a membership, please message our Facebook page to join the Messenger group chat.


Each year we send a team to represent at BUCS Short course, Long course, Team Qualifiers, and (if we make it) Team Finals. In addition to this, we participate in London League, annual friendly galas at Oxford and Manchester for all members.


We've had many admirable performances at the university level, with standouts being 3 bronze and 1 silver medal being won at BUCS open events over the past years. In addition, we have sent swimmers to the British Olympic and Commonwealth trials on separate occasions.
