Welcome to Bottisham Swimming Club!

We are a friendly and competitive swimming club based just north of Cambridge, with about 100 swimmers aged between 7 and 20. We swim at Bottisham and Impington Village College pools, and at galas throughout the eastern region and beyond.

Our latest news appears below, or please click on the links for more information.

Thurs 21 July – Bottisham Pool Open

B and A squad sessions can go ahead as usual this evening.  Problems have been caused by repeated power cuts which occurred over the weekend (when the centre was shut due to the incident at the school site) and since, and which have affected the filtration system. Ben says the pool is now safe and the chemical levels are OK.  The clarity level is still not perfect, but it is improving.

Thanks for your forbearance yesterday.

Just a reminder that we swim all through the summer – there is no break this year.


I have just (3.45pm) received news that there is a problem at Bottisham Sports Centre that means they have had to close the pool.  There will be no swimming this evening, Wed 20 July.  They have apologised for the inconvenience and are endeavouring to reopen the pool for B and A squad swimming tomorrow.  Please watch the website for confirmation – emails will not be sent tomorrow!

Neate Meet October – closing date Sunday

Just a reminder that the closing date for Club Entry to West Suffolk’s Neate Meet (1-2 October, Bury St Edmunds) is this SUNDAY 24 JULY.  Full details are here.  It is a really good one to do – small, friendly, potential for medals and good licensed times.

Please see this link for how to complete the forms – it is essential that you include times for each event you want to swim please, and your ASA number (which you can find through SWIM DATA), and a cheque made payable to Bottisham Swimming Club for the correct amount.  If you need a time trial, please ask the coaches for one in good time before the event deadline.  Carol has NOT been happy about the number of blanks in recently submitted forms, and we much prefer a happy Carol poolside!

If you can’t get to training to hand in the forms, please email me and I will let you have Carol’s address to send the form direct.
