Club History

How Leicester Sharks was formed

Leicester Sharks Competitive Swimming Club was founded in August 2011, when Enderby Swimming Club (ESC) and Lutterworth & District Swimming Club (LDSC) joined forces to better serve the surrounding communities.

Prior to the merger, ESC and LDSC were successful clubs in their own right, offering a high standard of coaching, and producing talented swimmers. 

As the two clubs attracted swimmers from the same region, it was a logical decision to amalgamate ESC and LDSC, and so Leicester Sharks Competitive Swimming Club was born.

Creating History

Since the formation of Leicester Sharks CSC, the club has developed swimmers to achieve great results at county, regional and national level.

The club has also started to make a name for itself in local and national league galas. Our gala results have improved every season since our inception, becoming the development programme we are today. The club finished 8th in the National Final of the Arena Junior Inter-League in 2017, after qualifying for the first time in our history. This group has improved year on year, after reaching the national semi-finals in 2015 and 2016. This development has started filtering into our seniors, with Leicester Sharks finishing 3rd in the National Arena Swimming League Area Final in 2017, after finishing 5th in 2016 and 8th in 2015.

With a winning combination of dedicated coaches, motivated swimmers and an active experienced committee, the club hopes to maintain swimming excellence in the region for years to come. ​
