Message from your Executive Committee

Welcome to Rushmoor Royals Swimming Club, the leading Swimming Club in North East Hampshire. The Club has a long tradition of excellence and offers all swimmers, from the youngest to the oldest, opportunities to improve and perform at and beyond the level that they have so far achieved.

We hope that you will be proud to wear your Rushmoor Royals kit and swim to the best of your ability, to be a credit to yourself, to your family and to Rushmoor Royals.


You have joined a competitive Swimming Club, intent on holding its own at the highest level possible, which means that you will be expected to work hard and give of your best. The challenge that all swimmers in the Club have before them is to do even better this year than they did last.

In swimming the only way to improve is to work hard, to listen to the advice and instruction of your coach and to practice - over and over again and then again. It all sounds impossible, but the rewards for your efforts are there for the taking - there is nothing like achieving a personal best or standing on the winner's rostrum. Unfortunately not everyone can take the top honours but that should not stop any of you from having a go.

I hope that you will accept the challenge and have a very enjoyable and rewarding association with Rushmoor Royals.
