About us

Swindon Dolphin is one of Wiltshire’s most acclaimed sports clubs. Seeking to enable its members to achieve success at county, regional, national and international levels of competitive swimming and water polo, the club provides the highest standard of teaching and coaching and is committed to helping every member reach their maximum potential across a wide range of ages and abilities (including masters and people with disabilities) in addition to promoting positive lifelong, physical and social values, skills and qualities, within a safe and healthy environment.

The club’s structure supports swimming sessions spread over 40 pool hours per week as well as a land based programme catering for developing swimmers at all levels of competition.

Formed in 1952, the Club’s membership is made up of approximately 400 swimmers and over 50 non swimming helpers and officials.

To provide the best possible calibre of coaching, the Club retains a full time Chief Coach, Lawrie Thompson and a team of Swim England Teachers and Coaches. Every year Dolphin competes at the ASA Wiltshire County Championships, the South West Regional Championships and the National Championships while the Water Polo squad takes part in the Bristol & West and National Leagues.
