Welcome to Team Luton

Team Luton Swimming Club is a well-established, friendly, competitive swimming club based at Luton’s sports complex Inspire: Luton Sports Village.

Topping the 2018 Beds County championships in terms of gold medals, we have Performance swimmers competing at Regional and National level.  Our Men’s Masters finished 10th in the British 2017 Team Decathlon but the Club prides itself on providing a supportive club environment that enables all swimmers to reach their full competitive potential.

We currently have space for new members in all of our squads. If you are interested in joining, contact either the Club’s Secretary or Masters Secretary. Read here for more about us or click on any of the drop down menus for much more information.

15 Medals Won At East Region Long Course Championships

Congratulations  to all sixteen of our swimmers who competed over the three weekends of the East Region Long Course championships. We won a total of 1 gold, 4 silver and ten bronze medals with many individual PBs. The medals total was more than any other club in Bedfordshire reflecting the breadth of talent and is testament to the time given by all of our coaches. Read here for full report.

Juniors Qualify For Winners Gala Of M11 League

We have qualified for the Winners Gala in Division 2’s Final Round of 2018’s M11 Junior Arena League.

In Round 2 of the M11 League at Basildon our youngsters, aged 9 – 11 years old, finished third with 144.5 points, just 9.5 points ahead of the fourth placed team from Dunmow Atlantis.

Our Ladies Are Vying For Places In GB Team Decathlon

After some impressive performances at Newmarket, as of 20th May, our Ladies are in 59th place out of 293 teams in the GB Women’s Team Decathlon competition. (This interim position has been achieved with just 19 out of a potential maximum 40 qualifying races.). Karen Mackenzie (aged 45), Michelle Neal (38), Sonia Bentley (50)  and Sharon Thompson (51) are our top four Ladies, so far, but Lorraine Sadler (47) and Gwen Skingley (36) are not far behind with their points totals.

To date our top four for the Men’s Team competition are Alastair Gibb (58) Dave Wright (57), John O’Rourke (49) and Malcolm Barton (62). The Men are in 23rd place, having competed so far in 31 qualifying races. (The results of the EDSC Masters Meet last weekend, where Alastair, John and Malcolm had the “pleasure” of a heat of the 400IM all to themselves have yet to be included.)

The club’s position in both team competitions will undoubtedly change following swims this weekend at the Midland Masters and then the GB Masters down in Plymouth next month.

April Meet : Important Information

Our Level 1 Meet on 14/15 April is going to be very busy, and very fast!  Please familiarise yourself with the following information:

  • There will be penalties for swimmers not turning up for their races. Please advise of withdrawals BEFORE the start of warm up.  See the Session Schedule to be sure of times.

  • We will be running a LIVE RESULTS service during the competition
  • As previously advised, there will be no late entries (including “time trials”) or on the day changes unless due to administrative error
