|Hailsham Swimming Club is a friendly, family orientated club serving Hailsham and its surrounding area. Formed in 1989, and is still going strong to this day, providing a safe environment in which the teachers can develop the swimmers up to a competitive standard.
At Hailsham Swimming Club we continually develop teaching and coaching skills, providing swimmers of all abilities the opportunity to compete or undertake swimming as a sociable leisure activity, within a friendly club.
Hailsham Swimming Club aims to become a top competitive squad within the County, providing opportunities for all our swimmers to excel at County, Regional and National level.
The club had a record number of swimmers qualifying for the 2014 Sussex County Swimming Championships. 22 swimmers represented Hailsham Swimming Club in a total of 167 events. They did the club and themselves proud, attaining over 100 personal best times and collecting 55 top three places. Ten year old Milly Widdop also won the British Age Group Category (BAGCATS) title, for the second year running.
Frankie Lee, Milly Widdop, Joe Golding, Maddison Drury, Bethany Collins, Evan Draper, Ben Kebbell, Nathan Pashler and Craig Steenhoff all qualified for Regional events in 2014. Craig also swam at the National Masters Championships. These high level achievements reflect the dedication by coaching staff and swimmers to reach their full potential.
Many of our swimmers take part in open meets all over the country and Hailsham ‘Hornets’ regularly compete in the Sussex League, against other swimming clubs in the county. Last season we finished third in division 2, a very proud achievement for the club and success that we intend to build on for this coming season.
