Bramcote Swimming Club is a competitive yet friendly swimming club, based in Nottingham. We cater for a variety of abilities, from improver to national competitor. From the young to the young at heart!
The Club was founded in 1965, when our ‘home’ pool at Bramcote Leisure Centre was built. The club has since enjoyed continuous activity and a strong membership, helping thousands of swimmers to develop their interest in the sport.
Saturday 19th May was the turn of the second round of the Derby and Notts League. After a very close and hard-fought win in the first round, Bramcote needed a good performance to attain a place in the ‘A’ final once again; and did not disappoint.
An early challenge came from Radford, who had a very strong second place finish in their first round, but Bramcote swimmers’ showed their speed and strength to pull far away from the rest of the competition to win the gala by a fantastic 52 points!
It may sound like a cliché to say that it was a fantastic performance, but again with a couple of swimmers missing, the swimmers swam their hearts out to achieve the final result which they thoroughly deserved!
- Bramcote – 238
- Radford – 186
- Nottingham Leander B – 171
- Derby Phoenix – 160
- Belper Marlins A – 143
- Worksop – 73
With the rest of the league results in, Bramcote sit in second place; only behind City of Derby A. For the past two years after Round 2, Bramcote has snuck into the top 6 (and therefore the A final) by just gala points rather than outright on league points. We have a real opportunity this year to finish a high as possible for a very long time! The final round is on Saturday 23rd June, at our home pool Bramcote LC; so please come down and support the team and show everyone just what a great club we are!
The Round 3 opponents are: City of Derby A, Nottingham Leander A, Sherwood, CABSC and Radford.

Saturday 21st April was the start of the 2018 Derby and Notts League for Bramcote’s 9-12 year old swimmers. There are three rounds; in April, May and June. Bramcote has made the ‘A’ final for the last two years, and racing against last year’s fellow ‘A’ finalist CABSC (Calverton and Bingham) as well as other strong competition at Worksop Leisure Centre, meant that Round 1 was never going to be easy!
Bramcote and CABSC were neck-and-neck throughout the entire gala, with the two clubs taking first places in 35 of the 47 events.
After having to wait until the next morning to discover the final scores from the gala (technical glitch), we were delighted to have won the gala by just five points!
This was a great first round performance, especially with a couple of swimmers missing. This stands us in good stead for Round 2 in May, where the competition is not likely to be any easier.
- Bramcote – 230
- CABSC – 225
- Mansfield – 148
- Worksop – 146
- Nottingham Leander B – 136
- Belper Marlins B – 85
Well done to all swimmers for all of the fantastic racing and team support, and thanks to the parents for your continued support and dedication!
Bring on Round 2 – Save the date (19th May) in your diaries!Read More
