Welcome to Team Luton

Team Luton Swimming Club is a well-established, friendly and highly successful competitive swimming club based at Inspire: Luton Sports Village.

We encourage everyone starting from their very first local swim meet through to our Performance swimmers competing at Regional and National level.  With seven Performance swimmers qualifying for the 2019 British or National championships, the Club prides itself on providing a supportive club environment that enables all swimmers, regardless of age, to reach their full competitive potential. As of July 2019, five of our current Performance and thirteen of our Masters and Seniors Age Group members held over 100 Beds County long course and short course records on distances ranging from 50m to 1,500m.

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.
