Bingham Penguins is a swimming club that caters for all disabilities, all ages and abilities. The club is able to take people from complete beginners through to swimmers training for competitions. Swimming sessions are run entirely by a team of volunteers who are there to support you and get the best out of your swimming. The sessions are teacher led and there are volunteers in the water to help support those who need it.

Spinal Cord Injury
We have a lot of experience working with people with impairments
Attending the club:
We require our members to join Swim England and be a member of Bingham Penguins Swimming Club. We invite you for a trial swim if we have a space for you within the club.
When we meet:
We meet on a Sunday evening between 5:30 and 7:00pm.
You will need to bring your swimming costume, towel and any other swimming equipment that you usually use. We have floats and other swimming equipment for you to use during the session. There are volunteers in the water to assist you if you require support.
The sessions are held at Rushcliffe Arena. There is a good amount of disabled parking outside the venue and access to the swimming pool is all on one level. There are no steps and it is easy to enter for wheelchair users. There are cubicles and larger changing areas to use but most of the cubicles are unfortunately not wide enough to fit a wheelchair into. There is one dedicated disabled changing room within the swimming changing area that has a changing bed in it.
