Hello and welcome to Midlothian Swimming Club
We are a competitive swimming club for people of all ages and abilities. We currently have around 80 swimmers ranging in age from 7-17. Swimmers are divided into four squads, Gold, Silver, Bronze and Development, depending on age and ability. Check out our ‘ACHIEVEMENTS’ page.
This photograph shows swimmers from our Development squad. This is usually the first squad you join when you start swimming with the club. They train two times a week at Beeslack community pool, Penicuik. Training on Thursday nights and again on Sunday morning. Some of the squad were in action recently at the Lothian Leagues (round 2) competition which was held at Whitburn.
