Welcome to East Grinstead Swimming Club

 1912 - 2014

Welcome to EGSC, one of the oldest swimming clubs in the country. Last year we celebrated our centenary by swimming 100 miles in 50 hours on East Grinstead High Street!

The club is friendly and competitive and has over 250 regular swimmers with ages ranging from 6 to 50 years old.

We place great emphasis on the teaching of swimming and the development of good technique. Swimmers are divided into ability groups starting with the pre-squad teaching group, progressing through to the various competitive squads, mini, bronze and senior.

From the age of 10+, all club swimmers are actively encouraged to enter galas and club members regularly compete in galas at the local, county, regional and in some cases national level.

In addition to individual galas, the club participates in the Sussex League and this year secured promotion to Division One following three emphatic wins during the 2012 season.

The club is always looking for new members to join our club and if you are interested, we would urge you to attend one of our regular assessment sessions which can be arranged by contacting our Membership Secretary.
