Welcome to the University of Liverpool Swimming cub

The University of Liverpool Swimming team is open to a wide range of abilities, from national level swimmers to those looking to improve their fitness and have fun.


Last year saw us finish in one of our strongest ever positions in the Team British Universities and Colleges Sports (BUCS) 2nd division, as well as a strong showing at the BUCS long course and short course championships. We engage in regular competitions throughout the year including Varsity, the NUDL league and a number of charity galas. We provide a fun and competitive environment for all swimmers.

Social events

In addition to attending the Athletic Union (AU) night held once a month, we also hold a welcome party, so all new members can get to meet each other and the current members. Regular socials are organised throughout the year, such as our annual Christmas meal, so don't hesitate to get involved! Our vibrant social calendar is central to our friendly and team-orientated atmosphere.
