Aquatics GB Bath Performance Centre

Team Bath is home to one of just two of Aquatics GB Performance Centres.

Double Olympic Champion Tom Dean trains at the University of Bath, where he is supported by a Bill Whiteley Sporting Scholarship

The network of centres was created by Aquatics GV to provide athletes with a fully integrated training programme and provide a daily world-class training environment for swimming development, offering a full range of pool and land-based facilities.

The centre at the University of Bath is led by David McNulty and Jamie Main, under whom winners of medals at the past three Olympic Games train or have trained – including five Olympic Champions.

Sports Performance student Michael Jamieson won 200m breaststroke silver at London 2012, while Jazz Carlin (2), Siobhan-Marie O’Connor and Chris Walker-Hebborn all won silver medals at Rio 2016.

Tokyo 2020 saw both Tom Dean and James Guy crowned as double Olympic Champions and there were also gold medals for Freya Anderson, Calum Jarvis and Matt Richards, plus another silver for Guy.

Dean and Jamieson are among many successful Olympic swimmers who have combined training with studying at the University, with double Olympian Andrew Willis having studied Chemical Engineering.

As well as training in the 50m pool, National Centre Bath swimmers also use land-based facilities at the Team Bath Sports Training Village such as our high-performance gym and other indoor and outdoor facilities.
