Shaping the Future of Swimming in the South East…
Guildford City is the leading swimming club in the South East of England (see our website for news articles and tweets about our many achievements). Our extraordinary team of over 90 highly qualified coaches and teachers deliver our unique teaching, training and partnership programmes from Learn to Swim all the way through to international swimmers.
We are a Swim England National Performance Centre and we work closely with Surrey University and Swim England. This allows swimmers to continue their swimming career whilst being able to achieve academic excellence, whilst still studying at the University and swimming at Surrey Sport Park under the Guildford City Coaching Team.
Our High Performance Squads (HPS) also swim exclusively at Surrey Sports Park which boasts a state of the art 50m pool as part of its facilities and the Club’s Academy swim at Spectrum Leisure Centre and the following school pools: Cranmore, Notre Dame, St Catherine’s & Guildford High School. Our Senior Competitive Development Squads train at Surrey Sports Park, Spectrum, Aldershot Garrison and Guildford High School.
