Masters Swimming in East London

Swimming training for competent adult swimmers with a Swim England registered swimming club, based in East London.

We meet at St George's Pool every Monday and Thursdays from 7.00 to 8.30pm. A general warm up takes place between 7.00-7.30pm, ready for the main programme 7:30-8:30pm. Our Monday sessions are led by a qualified swimming coach. The pool is 33.3m in length with depths from 1m to 3.8m. St. Geroge's also has an entry on Pool Finder.

We run 3 lanes of escalating ability, from recreational swimmers at one end to competitive swimmers, triathletes and water polo players in the other. Each lane can expect to cover around 2, 2.5 or 3 km in the hour long programme respectively. Take a look at our swimming programmes page for examples.

We operate a "pay as you go" system for sessions - no monthly subscriptions. Just £5 a session + 20p piece for locker hire (non-returnable).

If you start to swim regularly with us, we will need to register you as a swimmer with Swim England. This involves and the payment of a yearly membership fee (currently around £15 for non-competing swimmers, £33 for competing swimmers). This entitles you to exclusive benefits such as discounts on TYR swimming kit as well as insurance cover. All swimmers agree to abide by our club rules that cover safety and expected behaviour.

We are friendly and welcoming club. Some of sessions are followed by social events such as "refueling" at the local Italian restaurant :-)

Please note our swimming sessions are NOT included in any BETTER swim/gym membership packages.
