Thame Swimming Club was founded in April 2009 and has its home at Thame Leisure Centre. The club offers training for competitive swimming at Thame Leisure Centre (Thame), Risborough Springs Swim & Fitness Centre (Princes Risborough) and Headington School (Oxford).
The club is focused on the development of swimmers across a broad range of training levels and on keeping the fun factor high. We pride ourselves on a great, welcoming atmosphere.
Our aim is to give each swimmer a feeling of accomplishment at his or her individual level. Whilst swimmers learn good swimming technique they also learn to be part of a team that values fair play and sportsmanship.
Thame is a competitive swimming club with swimmers taking part in galas across the region in order to build their competition experience. Our excellent coaching team develops the swimmers skills as they progress from the Swim England Learn to Swim Pathway into the club and through the training groups to our County & District Squad.
We celebrate our swimmers success at galas and at the Annual Club Championships with an Awards Presentation Night for swimmers and their families.
In addition to the Annual Club Championships the club organises an annual Aquathlon and a week-long overseas training camp (BAT Camp) for swimmers in the top training groups. Swimmers are also encouraged to participate in a variety of local fund raising activities each year including the Thame Carnival, Thame Rotary Club Swimathon and Thame Round Table’s Santa Sleigh.
