Welcome to Hitchin Swimming Club, the home of swimming in Hitchin since 1840.

At Hitchin Swimming Club we provide a safe, enjoyable and friendly environment to allow all our members to fulfill their potential as competitive swimmers.

Anyone who wishes to become a member of the club is welcome to come along and try out for the club - see New Members Area for more details.

We only ask that you are a strong enough swimmer to join the club and are committed to competitive swimming.

We are very fortunate to have Lee Portingale as our excellent head coach. Lee has been involved in swimming for many years as both a national swimmer and highly qualified coach. Lee still swims sprint events for the club in galas. He is now an accomplished open water swimmer, and recently won a 26 km lake swim in Switzerland. This background as a swimmer allows Lee to empathise with the swimmers and build a strong rapport.

Lee is supported by a strong set of coaches and the committee of the club. See About Us for more details.
