Welcome to Kettering Amateur Swimming Club
Kettering Swimming Club is the premium competitive club within Kettering and the surrounding areas. We are a dynamic and exciting club with a long and proud history. Originally based at the Victoria Baths in Bath Lane Kettering, we moved to our present site on London Road in 1984.
Founded on the 15th of December 1914 the Kettering Men’s Swimming and Water Polo Club had 40 swimmers and 20 committee members. Membership to the club at the time cost 2 shillings and 2 pence (around 12.5p) and pool hire for 1 gala was 1 Guinea (about £1.05). Today’s galas take a minimum of 3 hours pool hire and it costs £60 per hour.
We are pleased to announce the dates for the county championships which are to be held at Corby pool in the new year. Attached are the schedule of events and the entry forms. Each event is £5 to enter and all fully completed entry forms with payment in full by cash or cheque must be given to your coach for checking and signing before 20th December 2015. These are great club occasions and I encourage you all to enter.
