Jersey Swimming Club

Please note that due to COVID-19 restrictions there will be changes in the running of the Club for the foreseeable future. Therefore, please contact for up-to-date advice.

Jersey Swimming Club was set up in October 1865 after two young boys drowned at Havre des Pas on 13th August that year.  The general public decided that the public needed to be taught to swim and hence the club was founded.   Incorporated in The Royal Court in 1893, the members went on to raise funds to build Havre des Pas Swimming Pool.

153 years later we are still teaching the public to swim and now have a range of lessons from parents and babies/small children, Learn to Swim, Development Squad, Competitive Squad, Adult Learn to Swim and Masters.  Facilities used for teaching are Langford, Aquasplash and Cheshire Home Hydrotherapy Pool.

The club runs four in-house galas every year, club champs, a sprint meet and island age group championships.  Swimmers have the opportunity to gain personal best times at all events  and a chance to compete against other Channel Island swimming clubs without having the expense of travelling away.   The club also takes part in events in Guernsey and the UK when appropriate.

Jersey Swimming Club is affiliated to JASA (Jersey Amateur Swimming Association), Swim England (ASA) and RLSS (Royal Life Saving Society).

Jersey Swimming Club is a family orientated club and remains the second oldest swimming club in the British Isles, with Brighton Swimming Club topping the list.
