Who We Are


We are Durham City Aquatics. A 160 year old city centre program that is both proud of its history and excited for its future.


At Durham City Aquatics our athletes are the centre of our world. We focus on the individual in each of our squads to help them reach their goals. We are dedicated to lifelong participation in swimming and the pursuit of sporting excellence


Swimming is a tremendously important life skill that we firmly believe that everyone should be given the opportunity to learn. Beyond that, swimming is a fantastic source of fitness, it is one of the best sports for all round health, it's known to reduce stress, improve mood and on top of all of that it is a great opportunity to meet new people.


Competitive swimming takes all of that one step further and allows individual use their skills and showcase their abilities against other likeminded and equally motivated people.


A place at Durham City Aquatics will see you develop confidence, resilience, discipline, teamwork and leadership skills; whilst making memories to be proud of and lifelong friendships.
