Welcome to the Otters

A fun and friendly Amateur Swimming and Lifesaving Club, based at Royal Wootton Bassett.

Competitive success

We take part in competitions across Wiltshire, as well as our Club Championships, every year.

Our mission is to become a club renowned for its quality teaching, fun and family atmosphere, striving for competitive success and bringing a lifelong love of swimming to all.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is based on swimming for life, for enjoyment and for fitness. We have always been and will continue to be a supportive and fun swimming club – providing opportunities to all levels of swimmers, whether that’s starting in our Learn to Swim section, competing at county and regional level as part of our Competition Squad, or developing life skills in our Lifesaving Section. 

Dedicated coaching

Royal Wootton Bassett Amateur Swimming Club is run entirely by volunteers and every person you see coaching or helping out is giving up their own time for the club. Most of our coaches are qualified to at least ‘ASA Assistant Teacher’ level and between them give up over 2000 hours a year poolside to help our children learn, compete and develop their swimming skills.
