The MC Splash Swim Club at Melbourn Sports Centre welcomes swimmers of all ability levels. We are a friendly, non-competitive club, although we do hold our own annual in-house gala each year.
Apart from swimming lengths, our swimmers also learn survival skills, snorkelling and other water based activities. We would particularly like to encourage younger children aged 8 and above to come and join our club!
