About Colchester Swimming Club

The Club is broad based and caters for all aspects of swimming. Our activities include stroke development, competitive swimming, fitness training, water polo and life saving. Our younger swimmers regularly compete in time-based galas, progressing to league and open competitions at County, Regional and National level.
