The Club was started in January 2019 after identifying the need to provide flexible, bespoke swimming training programmes for athletes who wanted to improve their swim confidence, analyse technique and to become more efficient and effective in the water. Many adults and triathletes wanted the opportunity to join a structured training group that fitted in with their existing training programmes for events but would also give them the opportunity to compete within recognised Swim England events, including the County Masters Championships and National Open Water Events.

To achieve the delivery of these bespoke sessions, for all ages and abilities, the Club haa worked with a wide network of pool operators across the region, which caters for athletes from all areas. Starting with a single lane hire at Parkwood Leisure’s Jubilee Swimming Pool, the Club now operates from 6 pools and 3 open water venues, encompassing both short course and long course training.

With 22 hours of “Training Time” available each week, the Club has divided these into bespoke sessions, where athletes can “choose” the session type, day and frequency for their personal programme, to really ‘fit’ the athletes’ lifestyle. All sessions are available to book online and are flexible each week. A.N.T. Swimming work with athletes by discussing the goals they wish to target, and designing ‘tailored’ programmes to help the swimmers achieve them.

There is NO Squad structure and NO monthly membership fees (only an Annual Membership Fee to cover Registration). Each athlete is an “Individual” and therefore can select the sessions they wish to attend, operating “Pay-As-You-Train”.

The Club was awarded SwimMark Essential accreditation in Dec 2019.
