About us

We are BNU Swim. We run a weekly swimming session where students, of any swimming ability, can come together to meet new people and improve their fitness.

Session Details:

When: Tuesdays, 9pm - 10pm

Where: Wycombe Leisure Centre

Minibus meeting: Gateway Reception, 8:15pm

The session is split into two groups, Recreational and Competitive.

Recreational (Currently Full)

For those who want to swim at their own pace. It is run in the same way as a public session, lanes are divided into slow, medium and fast. You pick your lane and can swim as far as you want. You are your own coach, set your own goals. A common goal for our rec swimmers is to swim one more length than the previous week. Recreational swimming offers the swimmer the most freedom and is a great place for those who want to work on general fitness or have a low impact workout.


For those who want a coach run session.

Our Competitive Pathway currently has 2 Squads, Development and Performance.


Our Development Squad is for anyone who wants to improve their technique, fitness and learn new skills, like race diving. The session is run by a swim coach who will take you through a program, building on what you did in the previous week.

This Squad is about having real improvement over the year as well as getting swimmers race ready, giving them the confidence to compete.

Development Squad requirements:

-The ability to swim. Unfortunately, we don’t offer swimming lessons and you will need some swimming ability to be able to be part of this squad.

-Commitment to training. Coming to training consistently is how you will get results from the program.

-Interest in racing


Our Performance Squad is for those who have swam at a high club level before or those who have worked hard in the Development Squad and are now at a level where they need more intense training.

Wycombe Leisure has a 50m pool that can be split down the middle to create two pools. BNU Swim has one pool, this is where Recreational and Development swim. WDSC’s Masters has the other, this is where the Performance Squad swims. Swimming with Masters means Performance swimmers can train at a higher intensity.

Performance Squad requirements:

-Meet the level set by WDSC. You will have a trial session with them and their coach will decide if you meet their requirements. You will have to be currently swimming at county level to be put forward for a trial.

-Commitment to training

-Commitment to racing

What to bring (everyone):

-Swimming Costume


-Swim Cap



-Training Kit (OPTIONAL, but Recommended for Development)

Training Kit For Performance (REQUIRED):





Whatever your goals are, you will be able to meet them at our session.

We pride ourselves in running a fun and friendly session, we want anyone and everyone to be comfortable. To do this we hold our members to high expectations for behaviour,  outlined in our Behaviour Contract. This is sent, along with a Welcome Pack, after signing up.
