About us

Welcome to Wellington Telford Swimming Club.

We are a competitive swimming club based at Wellington Leisure Centre in Telford, Shropshire.  The club takes great pride not only in the standard of teaching and coaching it provides, but also on the friendly and approachable atmosphere created by its members and volunteers.

The club welcomes swimmers from the age of five who are able to swim 25 metres (or have completed ASA Stage 3).  These youngsters progress through our teaching classes before being encouraged to compete at our own club championships and other junior competitions.

Our dedicated and experienced teaching and coaching staff routinely produce swimmers who compete at County level.  The club currently takes part in the Nuneaton Diddy and Crusader league as well as several other inter-club and open galas.  At the other end of the scale, the club also offers a masters element who regularly train and compete alongside our younger swimmers.

Water Polo is also an integral part of our club. Training twice weekly and spanning all ages, our ever growing Water polo section provides our members an opportunity to enjoy another aspect of swimming and compete in a local league.

The club supports its swimmers in attendance at open competitions and will organise pool side coaching  assistance at most events. Subject to the number of entries, bus transfer may also be arranged.  Most of the clubs sessions take place at Wellington Leisure Centre along with our sessions at Wrekin College and HLC, our swimmers are now able to train 6 days a week.

We welcome new swimmers and offer a no obligation 3 session trial at no cost*.  Details can be obtained from our club welcome desk on Wednesday or Friday evenings at Wellington Leisure Centre or contact us via the website, alternatively email:
