Sedgefield District 75 swimming club


Sedgefield 75 Swimming Club is a club of around 50 swimmers and, as the name suggests, it was formed in 1975 to provide competitive swimming for people in the geographic area of Sedgefield Borough Council now covered by Durham County Council. Training takes place at Newton Aycliffe Leisure Centre.

The club caters for swimmers of all abilities that are confident swimming in a 25m pool. The Club is split into different squads, depending on ability. The club encourages school aged children to join either the development squad, or for more competent swimmers C Squad, following swimming lessons. There is also opportunity for those with disabilities to join the club, this squad trains on a Sunday morning.

The founder members, Cyril & Sylvia Harris, both taught swimming and Cyril went on to become Chairman until 1985. Both are now Life Members of the Club.

The Chief Coach up until 1982 was Fred Hall, when John Moore, the present Chief Coach took up the post.
