Who We Are

Hemel Hempstead Swimming Club (HHSC) ranks as one of Hertfordshire’s premier clubs. The Club currently has in excess of 250 members from age 5 to Masters Level and our swimmers compete regularly in a wide range of competitions. We are Swim 21 accredited as a Skill Development Club and we are also accredited for Masters Swimming. In 2013 we were appointed as a Disability Assessment Centre so we can assist Disability Swimmers with their swimming goals.

Hemel Hempstead Swimming Club (HHSC) can trace its history to 1840, when the village community used clay ‘puddling pits’ carved from the local canal. The Club was formally established in 1913 as a non-profit community-based entity providing training and skill development for all levels of swimmers, with a special emphasis on the youth from the Hemel Hempstead metropolitan area (population 138,000). The Club’s base is in Hemel Hempstead, one of the principal towns in Hertfordshire, with diverse demographics which mirror the National ratings.

Since its inception, the Club has evolved into an accredited, competitive and winning community-based Club. The Club is a member of the UK’s Amateur Swimming Association (ASA), is accredited within the ASA’s Swim 21 scheme at ‘Skill Development’ level and has the distinction of being the first Club in Hertfordshire to win this accreditation.

The Club is highly visible and successful in County and Regional swimming activities. Its inclusive nature results in an impressive ‘strength-in-depth’ of swimmers enabling it to field multiple teams in multi-Division competitions - teams which compete successfully at all levels of these competitions.

The Club is operated by a team of parent volunteer-professionals in a caring and responsible manner. The team is headed by Andrew Farrow, as Chair, with a strong team of Committee Officers behind him.

The Club draws on the enthusiasm and commitment of many parents and guardians of its membership to provide a wide range of voluntary support including assistant coaches, coaching support, event officials, stewards etc. Parents and guardians also provide the invaluable motivational and practical support throughout training as well as in competition.
