Burnley Bobcats Swimming Club is a fully inclusive community swimming club. We are Swim England and Swim Mark Essential Club accredited with Disability Hub Club status. We aim to develop swimmers at every level from novice to national champion and beyond. With a proven swimming tuition and training programme, combined with flexible swimming development pathways, our qualified coaching team aims to support the development of all our swimmers whether they have non-competitive or competitive goals.



Starting out on your swimming journey? We take children of all abilities starting in our Pre-Competitive Swim Academy from the age of 4 years.

Throughout the week our competitively priced swimming lessons and training sessions are held at Padiham Leisure Centre, Padiham and St Peter’s Leisure Centre, Burnley.  



The Club offers a smooth transition into the performance development squad for talented swimmers with competitive swimming aspirations. Lead by our head coach Ian Spencer, Bobcat swimmers have succeeded at all levels of competition from County, Regional, National and onto British standard and the Club is consistently represented in the top 30 British Swimmer rankings across a variety of age groups.
