Welcome to Boldmere Swimming Club Website

Boldmere SC is one of the longest established swimming clubs in the Midlands, with the largest number of active members of any sports club in the UK's second city. Currently we have over 500 members attending 17 sessions at 8 venues, with more than 150 regularly taking part in competitive swimming and water polo events.

The club was formed in the 19th century by a group of enthusiasts who swam regularly in the pools of Sutton Park (on the north eastern edge of the Birmingham conurbation) taking its name from the nearby village of Boldmere which today is one of several residential areas that make up the historic Royal Town of Sutton Coldfield.

Boldmere SC is currently one of the most successful competitive sports clubs in the Midlands, reaching the finals of the Arena National Swimming League in every year since 2009 - where its swimmers have competed successfully against other leading English swimming clubs and their Team GB swimming stars.

Swim Therapy Filming / Stroke Analysis Opepertunity for Boldmere Swimming Club Members

Boldmere Swimming Club have a special arrangement with Swim Therapy to offer filming / swim stroke analysis opportunities to our competitive swimmers for a minimum of 1 session per season.

The sessions will enable the swimmer to observe what they are doing in the water & bring the filming back to implement corrective / developmental drills within their program (in communication with their head coach).

Timing this in pre to early season is ideal, so before or during the training phase over the first cycle (August to December).

These sessions will be at a specially arranged reduced rate (payment to be made at the Swim Therapy Head Office on the day of your session)

*Reduced rate* 90 minute 2 stroke session: £95-£110 (normal price: £165-00)**
*Reduced rate* 60-minute 1 stroke session: £70-£85 (normal price: £130-00)

To book your place contact the Swim Therapy Head Office on 01162325833.

** Please note those swimmers with 4 strokes to film will require 2 x 90 minute sessions
