Club Ethos

Competitive Swimming

We are a friendly and competitive swimming club based at Putney Leisure Centre in South West London.  The Club has over 160 swimmers from seven years old to open age group; and operates almost ninety hours of pool time per week across six squads. 

As a Club we compete in the First Division of the National Arena League, in addition to offering our swimmers a programme of open meets throughout the year. The Club supports the Crystal Palace Club Network by integrating its performance squads into those sessions that are run at Crystal Palace.

Wandsworth Swimming Club is SwimMark accredited and we have introduced talent pathways across all age group squads.  We have done this to foster a life long participation in swimming for all our athletes, and to provide a mentoring system to maximise the potential of our swimmers.

Swimming for fitness

In 2016 we introduced a fitness squad for swimmers 11+ who are interested in gaining and maintaining swim fitness but are not able to commit to the level required for the club's competitive squads. For more information see our fitness squad page.


WSC's diving squad was established in 2015 and is based at Putney Leisure Centre where the facilities include 1m and 3m spring boards as well as a five metre platform. We welcome divers of all abilities from complete beginners to those with more experience. Divers will be taught the mechanics of dives from all heights and will be given opportunities to compete. For more information see our diving page.
