About East Anglian Swallow Tails swimming club

East Anglian Swallowtails (EAST) was formed in 1987.  We are a local swimming club with a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. We currently swim in 4 different pools in and around Norwich; UEA Sportspark, Riverside,  the Hewett School and in the summer months, Beccles Lido.

Our swimmers range from national record holders in their age range to those who are keen to stay fit but do not wish to compete.  We are pleased we have a group of swimmers who are triathletes who also enjoy the benefits of our coaching and pool availability.

Our founder member Jane Asher, currently holds several world records and is a swimming hall of fame member. We also have members who have swum the English Channel.

At present we offer coached swimming sessions on every day of the week except Wednesday. During each session, swimmers are divided into lanes according to their ability, so that each group is given training and coaching to meet their needs.

We have the occasional social and these are well attended by members.  We offer a variety of payment types to allow swimmers to select  the package that best meets their needs.  For further details please see our Club Membership page.

It will be great to see you if you feel drawn to trying out one of our sessions. If you would like to try out swimming with our club, EAST offer two free trial swims to all new members. Please contact Will at membership@swallowtails.co.uk for further details.
