Club 15 years old

This year the club are celebrating it’s 15th year of existence.

The club formed in 2001, following the demise of Thanet Vikings,  was set up through a partnership with the then pool operator,  Thanet Leisure Force.

With only a handful of swimmers at the time, the club started from the botton and has continued to grow significantly under a great system and excellent coaches.

Over the years, the swimmer numbers continued to increase, providing a great platform for the our achievements to improve. In the last 5 years, the club has started to see national recognition with swimmers regularly competing at Nationals.

In 2014, the club merged with Margate Swimming club, seeing the formation of our Dolphin squads, providing alternative competitive squads and enabling a consolidation of pool time available for club swimming in Thanet.

In 2014/15, competing in the team events, the club achieved their best ever results, winning the Kent Junior League and qualifying for the National B Final in the Arena League.

This year (2015/16) so far has continued to grow and improve, defending the Kent Junior League title and going one better to qualify for the National A Final in the Arena League.
