Nottingham Northern Swimming Club

Nottingham Northern Swimming Club logoNottingham Northern Swimming Club is a friendly and competitive swimming club which welcomes both female and male swimmers of all abilities from the age of five years old.

Training Sessions are held four times a week; twice at our home pool, Beechdale Swimming Centre, and once each at Ken Martin Leisure Centre and at Nottingham High School. The club organises an annual Nottingham Northern Junior Open Meet in June each year and enters swimmers in a range of Galas throughout the year.

Northern Junior Open 2015

The Northern Junior Open 2015 takes place at Beechdale Swimming Centre on Sunday 28th June. Swimmers aged 9 to 14 on the day will compete at all four 50m strokes and 100m IM. Trophies will be awarded to all finalists and to the top club, top boy and top girl. More information and a list of all entries are available to access from the Northern Junior Open 2015 page. ENTRIES ARE NOW CLOSED! Due to the popularity of this event this year we have had to close entries early, although there will be a short waiting list to replace any swimmers who have to withdraw before the event.


Here is the J Tibbitts Cup, presented annually to the Top Club at the Open. Sutton Swimming Club are the current cup holders and will be returning in 2015 to defend their top slot!
