"Studious attendance at lectures and laboratories will bring you a degree, but it alone will never form you a character. A student's character is moulded on the playing fields and in his association with his fellow-students, living up to the fine ideals of sport. It is a foolish man who will neglect his sport for the sake of whole-time devotion to studies, and still a more foolish man who neglects his studies for the sake of sport. The man who leaves his mark behind him in university history is he who strikes a happy medium." (Athletic Union pamphlet for new students, 1923)

We all had a fantastic time at the AU social on the 30th October! It was a great turn out and we can't wait to see more of you all on the 3rd October (Saturday)!
Hello & Welcome to the University of Manchester Swimming Club Website! We're looking forward to welcoming new members and the return of existing members this coming September and are currently working very hard to ensure that everything is ready for your arrival.
Free Circuit Training: 3rd October 12PM at the Armitage Centre in Fallowfield for both Comp and Rec Swimmers
Also bring your Student ID to be registered at the front desk for future sessions!
Don't worry if you missed last week's session, come along to the sessions next week!
Don't worry if you didn't make it to the freshers fair, just come along to these training sessions and we will explain to you all about joining the team and paying membership (Competitive £45, Recreational £25 for the whole year)!
To add yourself to our swimming mailing list, please email email@example.com.
Unlike some other universities (no names mentioned!), we don't hold formal trials to join the club - it's as simple as this: if you turn up to training regularly and you're good enough, then you'll make it into the teams!
We train at the Manchester Aquatics Centre - the pool built especially for the 2002 Commonwealth Games here in Manchester, right in the centre of the university campus.
The club is a fun way to get involved with sport at the university, a lot of people will heartily recommend you get involved with a sports team at university for the laughs, fitness and something to put on your CV at the end of it.
