What do we do?

The BU swim team is a fun, friendly club that caters for all levels of swimming abilities.

We offer both a social and competitive side, so either if you want to compete, get fit or just meet new people our club is definitely for you.

On the competitive side, our main focus is towards BUCS nationals and other smaller meets across the year, so there's plenty of opportunities to compete.
