HISTORY OF OUR CLUB

Established in 1960 and one of Leicestershire's oldest sports clubs, Leicester Penguins Swimming Club provides excellence in coaching , training and racing for swimmers of all ages. A friendly and open club which supports and facilitates swimmers' development in all areas, from swimming for fitness to international competition.

Our swimmers are encouraged to strengthen both their resolve and commitment, to improve their technique, along with hard work, if they are to achieve their goals.

Leicester Penguins are proud to provide a development pathway for swimmers of all abilities from early competitive swimmers through to National and International competition level. We also run a very successful Disability squad.

CURRENT SITUATION 

The global COVID-19 pandemic has impacted our club financially and we are desperate to get our club members back to a sport they love as soon as possible safely.

Like so many other sports organisations we have been hit by the Covid pandemic. We are fundraising to ensure that Leicester Penguins can get back into the pool as safely as possible once the government and the swimming governing bodies decide it is safe to do so. 

As a result of the Coronavirus crisis the club has been unable to train from March, with a brief welcomed return for 7 weeks, and then shut AGAIN until early December with it’s members kept away from the sport they love. 

The club has incurred increased costs since returning due to social distancing measures in place, resulting in a reduction in how many swimmers are allowed in each lane.

We need your help to ensure that the club thrives, and swimming has a secure future @ Leicester Penguins. 

ADDED BONUS

The good news is that we are hoping to get the support of Sport England. They have teamed up with Crowdfunder and launched a fund to help clubs - they will hopefully contribute up to 50% of our target. We have set a target of raising £1,500 by late December which if successful could then be boosted by Sport England to a final total of £2250
