We are a very open club with about 100 swimming members aged from 7 to 19

Demand for places is high and parents are advised to apply early. You will then be contacted on a first come first served basis as soon as a place becomes available.

PLEASE DO NOT JUST TURN UP FOR A TRIAL AS YOU NEED TO HAVE BEEN INVITED FIRST. If you just turn up the poolside staff with turn you away.

Entrance Criteria

The club's minimum entrance criteria are that swimmers should:

  • Be able to swim 1 width on front and back with a recognised stroke with correct technique
  • Have an interest in progressing towards swimming.
  • We do take the occasional non-swimmer if we have staff capacity to deal with it so please ask first

If you are interested in joining the club, you are invited to attend a water trial.

Trials are held regularly and you are asked to contact the club directly via the membership email membership@marlinsswimmingclub.co.uk or call us to arrange a suitable date. The membership number is 01737 400 162. These trials are held on a Monday evening at Donyngs Leisure Centre in Redhill, Surrey, between 7:00pm and 8:00pm.

Please come along with swimming trunks/goggles and a towel and we will assess the swimmer's ability. During the trial, swimmers will be asked to swim some of the following strokes:

  • Front crawl
  • Backstroke
  • Breaststroke
  • Butterfly (basic only)

Accepted swimmers will then be placed in the appropriate training group for their ability and development.

Applicants are then required to return a completed APPLICATION FORM to the club. Once accepted, membership and training fees will become due. These fees are payable monthly by standing order.

We look forward to hearing from you and welcoming you to our club!
