Swimming

Swimming at Team Bath ranges from learn-to-swim sessions, recreational swimming and performance swimming.

Some of Britain's top swimmers are based at the University of Bath, including London 2012 Olympic silver medallist Michael Jamieson, as well as Chris-Walker Hebborn, a double gold medallist at the  Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, and Siobhan-Marie O'Connor, who won six medals at the Glasgow Games. The trio are among the swimmers who train at British Swimming's Bath National Training Centre.

Also training at the University of Bath is Paralympic GB's Stephanie Millward, who won five medals at the Paralympic Games in London in 2012. Steph is also a four time world champion, collecting five medals at the IPC World Swimming Championships in Canada in 2013. Steph trains as part of the Aquae Sulis Performance Swimming Club.

London 2012 legacy pool

Following extensive work, our recently redeveloped 50m London 2012 legacy pool is officially open. The redevelopments include a new pool tank (2m deep throughout), improved changing rooms, a modernised plant room and a refurbished ventilation system.

 

Our updated footwear and etiquette policies aim to maintain high standards of hygiene and safety at the pool facilities and should be adhered to by swimmers.
