We are a friendly and competitive swimming club with swimmer ages ranging from 5 years though to Masters (18+). We aim to develop swimming skills, stamina, and speed of all our members. Our goal is for all our swimmers to achieve the best they can, to improve on their ‘personal best’ times, to enjoy their swimming and the competition.

Seagulls Swimming Club is affiliated to Swim England. We use the Swim England “Learn to swim” resources, developing water confidence and skills. Swimmers then progress to developing stroke technique for all the four competitive strokes through to competitive swimming, competing in club events, galas, open meets, and county competitions.

We fundamentally believe it is important for all our members to enjoy their training and make new friends along the way.



Our members are drawn from Christchurch, New Milton and the surrounding areas of Dorset & Hampshire including Barton-on-sea, Bournemouth, Bransgore, Burton, Highcliffe, Milford-on-sea, Lymington, Verwood and the New Forest.


If you are interested in joining, then please contact us to arrange a free trial session. You can contact our Members Secretary by email at:

After your trial we’ll give you some feedback and let you know the best squad for you based on your current ability. If you decide to join us, there will be a little paperwork to complete, and you’ll be asked to read our formal Welcome Pack . The Welcome Pack is available from Club Documents.  Finally, we will send you a link to register on our membership management system (TeamUnify)

Once you’re in a squad, your competitive swimming journey will begin!
