Midhurst & District Swimming Club have been in existence for more than 40 years and aim to provide swim teaching to children of all school ages in the area in a non-competitive and fun environment.

They organise ten-week termly trips on a Thursday evening at 6.30pm from the North Street bus stand in Midhurst via coach to the Haslemere swimming pool.

They have dedicated use of a number of lanes where the children are taught in groups of varying abilities by ASA-qualified teachers, supplemented by parent volunteers, between 7pm and 8pm.

Children are dropped off at 8.30pm back at the North Street bus stand. Additional pick-up points in Easebourne and Fernhurst can be arranged.

An important part of the experience for most children is that the evening is independent of parents, while under the supervision of volunteer parent helpers. Organisers want it to be a social and enjoyable trip.

From this month they will be operating at £75 for a ten-week term (£7.50 per session) to cover costs.

They are always looking to boost and maintain membership and improve their offering. Equally they welcome suggestions and assistance with a well-loved Midhurst institution.
