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 are all 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.

If you’re interested, you can contact the head coach,
