The Club

Established in 1868 we are one of the longest running clubs in Great Britain.

Our club is run entirely by volunteers who work tirelessly to ensure the continued success of the club.

We welcome participants and encourage healthy lifestyles, provide advice and direction to help our members stay in sport and maintain a lifelong love of swimming and sport.

We encourage our older swimmers to pass on their skills in the pool to up and coming youngsters by becoming helpers and then progressing to a level 1 ASA teaching badge.  Our level 2 coaches are the backbone of our programme, they develop the teaching strategy and lesson plans, ensure teaching is to the highest standards and mentor our level 1's and assistants.

Gala Swimming

Rochdale Swimming Club actively participates in the Central Lancashire ASA Regional Swimming Galas.  We actively encourage swimmers to try out for a place to represent the club.

Swimmers must be aged 9 yrs and over to participate in ASA Gala events.

​​​​​​​Club Notices​​​​

We’re pleased to confirm that Rochdale Swimming Club is reopening on Monday 12th April.

We’re still waiting for confirmation from Swim England on any updated rules but at this point in time, the same rules will apply that were in place prior to the latest lockdown (reminder of the rules below). We will let you know if there are any amendments to the rules:

  • Arrive on time and beach ready (swimwear under clothing) as swimmers will be going straight to poolside without access to the changing rooms.
  • No late arrivals
  • Children must get into the pool as soon possible once poolside and no messing around on the poolside.
  • After the session, children must shower at home, getting changed as quickly as possible and exiting the leisure centre.
  • Limited spectators where possible with a maximum of 1 spectator per family (unless you have young children that you have to bring with you).
  • During this phase of reopening, only under 18’s are allowed to swim for the club (or those who have turned 18 during this school year)
  • We still can’t reopen with our learn to swim sessions due to the restrictions that are in place.

We will provide updates via this website and also our facebook page.
