Welcome to the University of Manchester Swim Team. Now sponsored by ENTERPRISE RENT A CAR

"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, 1923)
