Winning's the Aim — Swimming's the Game: Catering for competitive and recreational swimmers alike.
About SwimmingSouthampton University Swimming Club is a multidimensional club catering for competitive and recreational swimmers alike.
We aim to help our members improve their swimming and enable them to compete at the highest possible level.
We compete at many competitions throughout the year and achieve great results everywhere we go.
We compete at all BUCS (British University College Sports) competitions: Short Course Champs, Long Course Champs, League.
Short/Long Course Champs are similar to open meets and League is similar to a team gala.
We also compete at local competitions, our own gala and Varsity.
Every Wednesday our members come together for our memorable socials, many which involve fancy dresses and activities/challenges.
All our members are welcome and we're sure you'll have an incredible time!
Once a year (normally Easter) we head on tour to a sunny location for a week of fun, sun and nightlife (and a little bit of swimming).
Past locations include: Benalmádena, Albufeira, Tenerife, Salou & Lanzarote.
Please visit our website for further information (https://www.susc.org.uk/), or contact SWIMsusc@soton.ac.uk for any queries you may have.
