Black Lion swimming club is Swim 21  accredited and our team of qualified coaches and teachers  ensure swimmers can reach their maximum potential.

We welcome membership enquiries from non swimmers looking to learn,  swimmers of all ages looking to start competing and swimmers already competing at any level.

Academy Swimmers

Our academy or 'learn to swim' section welcomes swimmers from the age of three and has no formal entry requirements. Please contact us, and ideally provide a mobile number and we will be in touch to arrange for you to come and have a look at what we do.

Competitive Swimmers

Black Lion has a long history of successfully integrating competitive swimmers who have moved to the area, or who join us for other clubs. You are welcome to join us and swim for a few sessions to see what you think, and to speak to other members, coaches, committee and parents. There are reduced membership fees for those joining us midyear. Please contact us by email (including your ASA number) and we will be in touch to arrange a trial (trials operate all year - there is no special time slots)


We welcome new masters swimmers, either wishing to compete at any level, or for fitness swimming. We don't have a formal trials process- drop us an email so we know to expect you, then just come along, have a swim and see what you think of us!
