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.
Following Tuesday's government announcement of further easing of lockdown, Swim England have launched a campaign to pressure the government to open gyms and pools on 4th July, along with the long list of other venues that will be permitted to open.
The Government has repeatedly claimed that physical activity is a key part of getting through the current situation, yet this option is not available for the millions of people who swim every year, including many thousands who struggle to be active on land because of health conditions.
Swim England has produced guidance detailing how people can get back in the water in a safe, controlled manner, which makes the decision to delay the reopening of pools even more frustrating.
Please back the campaign if you feel able. All the details can be found at this link, including a link to a petition (this has already received over 40,000 signatures) and a template letter for people to send to their MP.Read More
We hope that you are all ok and not getting too bored staying at home. If you want to try something new here is a link to the Youth Sport Trust Physical Activity Bingo. Why not get the whole family involved?
Watch out for an e-mail from us about Swim Club Manager. The club is now starting to use this club management software to communicate with members and login details for members are being sent out so that you can check the information we hold is correct.
Hope you all enjoy your time off home-schooling and are making the most of the good weather to get some outdoor exercise every day

Hope you are all ok and keeping safe. Isn't it strange being dry all the time! Remember to stay as active as you can while we are not in the pool.
The links we sent out previously (Joe Wicks, Swim England, Sport England) are still good ones to use but here are a couple more, in case you are getting bored of them. Post some photos of your activities in our club group, maybe you'll inspire your team-mates!
For older swimmers, have a look at the Swim England home training page, it has some really good land training activities aimed at swimmers aged 12+
