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.
Our Ladies took centre stage at the 2019 Barnet Masters Sprints Meet. They collected 17 medals, emulating their male colleagues, but had the surprise bonus of breaking a Beds County Masters relay record whilst adding to what is already the Club’s highest ever Ladies Team decathlon score. Not a bad way to mark Masters’ coach Pauline Harrington’s birthday! Read here for a full report.
Congratulations to Karen Mackenzie, Kelly Cooke, Jodie Armstrong and Michelle Neal on breaking the 160+ years 4 x 50m Freestyle Relay record in a time of 2:06.20 at the Barnet Copthall Masters Sprints Meet. All four swam 31 second splits; a great team effort.
Congratulations to club coach Dave Wright on his Bronze medal at the Swim England Open Water Championships. Dave’s medal came in his age group’s 3k swim. Alice Pinney meanwhile finished 4th in the 18-24 years’ Ladies 5k event.

Celyn Walmsley, Rhys Davidson and Jj Wilde all made finals but in literally the very last event over the two competitions, Matt Wright claimed a silver medal for Team Luton in the 19 years & over 400m Freestyle with a blistering final 50m. Read here for a full report.
