About us

Renowned for quality teaching with a fun and friendly atmosphere

A supportive and fun swimming club – providing opportunities to all levels of swimmers.

The club

Wootton Bassett Amateur Swimming and Lifesaving Club ‘Otters’ was formed in 1973 and has grown to become a thriving and integral part of the local community. Based at the Lime Kiln Sports Centre in Royal Wootton Bassett, we’ve become a club renowned for quality teaching, with a fun and family atmosphere – whilst striving for competitive success and bringing a lifelong love of swimming to all.

The people

We’re run entirely by volunteers. Every person you see teaching or helping out is giving up their own time for the Club. Most of the coaches you see on poolside are qualified to at least ASA Assistant Teacher level – qualifications gained in our own time. Our club could not run without volunteers, so if this is something you think you would be interested in, please get in touch.
