About King's Cormorants

  

Kings Cormorants Masters Club is based at The Kings Club, Kings College School Wimbledon, London SW19 4TT.

 

The club was founded 20 years ago. It is a small, friendly club. Our aim is to provide coaching for adults who wish to improve their strokes, technique or speed and compete in Masters events for those aged 25+.

 

There are no sessions for children or young people.

 

 The club has two levels of membership:

 

1.Full training members of the club can attend any three out of four sessions a week, on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9 to 10 pm and on Sundays from 8 to 9am. Due to constraints of space in the pool the club has a limit on full membership to avoid overcrowding.

 

2.Non-training members - we do accept a limited number of swimmers who live in the London Surrey region, who wish to have a club affiliation but are unable to train with us regularly.  

 

We regret that we are unable to offer full training memberships currently. We have a waiting list which is held by the secretary. When a vacancy occurs, those on the list are invited to a trial and after seeing the swimming abilities of those who attend, the coach recommends who is best suited to the vacancy taking into account the lane in which the vacancy has occurred.

Swimming Etiquette

 

 

Why swim?

 

Swimming is an activity which provides a full body workout and is an excellent way of getting all-round exercise. It benefits the upper body, mid-section and legs. It is a good way to improve  strength, stamina and cardiovascular fitness, and it can boost your mood. Since water supports the body swimming, unlike running or weights, it is a low impact sport reducing the likelihood of injuries.According to an independent report published June 2017, swimming provides a number of benefits for health and wellbeing for people of all ages.

 

Swimming is a lifelong skill that could save a life.
