The Marie Curie swim was a great success. We absolutely smashed our target distance, swimming 302km and raising over £1500!

We are one of the largest sports clubs at the University of York with around 75 members. We train almost everyday at the York Sport Village on the Heslington East campus. Our swimming team is competitively-focused, although we also offer a 'Swimming for Fitness' membership option for non-competitive swimmers as well.

We have both men's and women's water polo teams and we welcome players of all abilities down to training. We have loads to get involved with throughout the year, including meets, matches, open water swims, socials and tour to name a few.
