Joining the club

Gateshead & Whickham Swimming Club warmly welcomes and encourages new members at all levels of participation.

Children or adults new to swimming, children progressing from council run schemes, competitive swimmers wanting to try out swimming at a professionally run club or ‘mature’ swimmers wishing to keep their sport going … All are welcome.

If you aren’t sure if being part of the club is for you, we offer ‘try out’ sessions. These are sessions where, depending upon the level at which you wish to swim, you can join in with an ongoing session and / or be assessed by the Head Coach … Free Of Charge

Finding out about membership or try out sessions is straightforward.

Contact one of our Committee or click on the link at the bottom of this page and fill in the form. Somebody will contact you and give advice on which pool to go to, when to go to it and what to expect when you get there.

Assessments are usually performed at Gateshead Leisure Centre after 7pm on a Tuesday, but only by appointment.  To book an appointment please contact or click the following Contact us link.
