Welcome to the Electric Eels Swimming Club

We are a family orientated swimming club specifically for the benefit of children with Downs Syndrome. We welcome everyone over the age of 8 years old who want to learn to swim, develop their strokes and swim competitively. Our members come from as far afield as the Isle of Wight to Ealing and our sessions run from 5:30 to 6:30 on Saturday evenings in Windsor. Our Swimmers compete in National Disability Galas and Special Olympic competitions.

The Electric Eels are proud to announce the start of the First Synchronized Swimming Club for people with Down Syndrome. Please contact Directorofswimming@electriceels.org.uk if you are interested. Please note, you must be able to swim.

Our Aims

Through swimming our members gain confidence, meet new friends and have fun. Our Director of Swimming has over 20 years experience of Disability Swimming and is ably helped by our fabulous band of volunteer teachers and helpers, who have all been checked by the Criminal Records Bureau. We hope to produce a number of international swimmers in the near future

Where We Meet

We meet on most Saturdays between 5:30pm and 6:30pm except Christmas, Easter and all of August at the Windsor Leisure Centre in Windsor. The address of the pool is:

Want to Help?

We can only run the club with the support and help of our teachers as well as our loyal band of volunteer helpers.
If you are interested in making a difference to the lives of our members, we always need additional helpers/teachers/coaches at our sessions, please contact either the Chair or Director of Swimming.
No formal qualifications are necessary for volunteer helpers but you should have an interest in swimming as well as patience and a sense of humour. Our Director of Swimming, will give you all the direction you need. The Club is willing to consider sponsoring volunteers to gain swimming and teaching qualifications.
