Penrith Swimming Club



Term Dates

We run all year round expect for the summer break

Water Polo

As previously advised the club runs a monthly water polo session.  These sessions run from 7.15pm – 8.15pm.

When these sessions are on those swimmers who would normally be swimming at this time are expected to swim in the earlier session at 6.15 – 7.15.

The water polo sessions are open to all and are great fun.  If you would like to volunteer to help with this please speak to a committee member.


If any of the water polo sessions are cancelled or changed we will advise on the notice board and on Facebook. If cancelled swimming would then go back to the normal Sunday times.




We are pleased to say that more swimmers are entering into galas, PSC are charged for each race entered, this fee is covered by your membership under certain circumstances, however if you have to withdraw after the closing date you will be liable for the entry fee – normally £4 per race.


Please see below some of the upcoming galas but please look on the notice board regularly as galas and entry lists are posted on the notice board.
