Welcome to Bournemouth Swimming and Water Polo Club


We are a small, friendly swimming club based at Stokewood Leisure Centre, Bournemouth. We accept any age of swimmer, but the minimum requirement is that you can swim one length of any stroke unassisted.

Swimming will improve strength, stamina and suppleness by using all the muscles in the body and exercising the joints. In addition the determination required to succeed can develop self discipline. It also enables access to other disciplines of the sport such as: water polo, synchronised swimming and diving.

All swimmers will be given opportunity to compete in our club championships and represent the club in inter-club galas.
