Winchester City Penguins Swimming Club is a registered Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) which exists to provide inclusive and high quality swimming opportunities. The organisation has three main strands of swimming programmes in order to achieve our objectives: competitive swimming, lessons provision, and community engagement
Winchester City Penguins is one of the biggest swimming clubs in the country and sports clubs in Winchester. All of our lessons swimmers are registered members of the club and part of the Penguins ‘family’. We are unique in that we recruit lessons helpers and teachers from our competitive and ex-competitive swimmers and offer one-to-one ratios in our youngest stages. As a local Not-for-Profit we are very proud of our 75 year history of providing accessible, affordable and progressive swimming opportunities. We currently have nearly 800 learn-to-swim swimmers, 60 members of the teaching team and 18.5 hours of teaching each week. When lessons swimmers reach the latter swim stages they have the opportunity to go on to join a competitive swimming squad, where they can work towards County, Regional, National or even International success.

Winchester is an outstanding place to live and work with a historic market place, the stunning New Forest on its doorstep, as well as access to the beautiful beaches of the South. We are an innovative and forward thinking organisation which places value on its people. We are looking for passionate and inspiring people to join us and help us demonstrate the impact swimming can have.
