About

Bristol North is a friendly, competitive swimming club

Our most important measure of success is that the members enjoy their swimming.

Bristol North Swimming Club, founded in 1922, has been providing almost 100 years of passion and expertise in swimming.

A Swim Mark club with over 200 members, Bristol North is one of the most established and recognised competitive clubs in Bristol.

We are a competitive, inclusive, and fun club. We work hard to achieve great results in our sport, but balance this by ensuring that we have some fun and avoid burn-out.  

Many people say that we are Bristol's friendliest club.  We work hard to keep it this way; a close family with shared interests in a terrific sport.

Bristol North has four teaching and coaching stages:

1. Learn to Swim (for non-swimmers)
2. Swim Development (becoming a competent swimmer)
3. Competitive Squads (becoming a competitive swimmer)
4. Masters Squad (swimming for life)

We pride ourselves on being an inclusive and motivating team, making swimming accessible and fun for athletes of all ages and abilities.
