More Info

Spencer Swim Team was founded in 1977 as a competitive swimming Club, specialising in providing Masters swimming training and competing in Masters competitions. In fact our Club has been the GB Masters Club Champions in: 2007 (Manchester), 2009 (Cardiff), 2011 (Leeds), 2013 (Plymouth), 2014 (Swansea).

We are based in South London and hold training sessions in Dulwich, Clapham Leisure Centre, Putney Leisure Centre and Tooting. We are open to adults of any age. Training is led by Head Coach Astrid Wharton, Level 2 Coach, Open Water instructor and Swim Teacher and has been coaching since 2013.

We provide 6 coached sessions per week.

Our policy of multiple lane hire at all our pools enables Members to train with others of similar ability, so if you’ve not trained for a few decades, don’t worry! We pride ourselves on a relaxed, friendly poolside atmosphere – turn up to the training sessions when it suits you. We also aim to have regular socials at Masters swimming competitions and Club organised events and this is underpinned by an active Club Facebook page, open to Members.

Our Club is run by a Committee of volunteers from the Membership.
