Welcome to Saxon Crown

We are Lewisham's competitive swimming Club.  We were established in 1975, as a result of a merger of three clubs in the area, to promote and support swimming as a sport in the London Borough of Lewisham. Past and present club members have progressed from learning to swim within the Club to national, regional and county champions and competitors. The Club is also proud to have trained a number of swimmers who have represented the U.K. and held British records, including current European masters and World disability champion swimmers.

The Club believes in being as wide-ranging and inclusive as possible. We have over 300 members, ranging from Learn to Swim through to top competitive squads competing at regional and national level.  We also have a thriving Masters squad, and also offer the opportunity for non-competitive swimmers to train with us in our Club squads. We are one of the few clubs that has dedicated squads and groups for disabled swimmers (Tigersharks) that are fully integrated within the Club structure.

Club Vacancies

We currently have vacancies in our swim squads, so please get in touch for more details and to arrange an assessment.

We also welcome enquiries from swimmers who are already training competitively and moving into the area or seeking a new club, and from masters swimmers of all abilities.

We will also always try to accommodate swimmers with disabilities in our Tigersharks squads.  We currently have no vacancies but we are happy to add details to our waiting lists.

Where we swim

We currently swim at Glassmill, Wavelengths, Forest Hill and Downham pools. We hope to swim again at Crystal Palace National Sports Centre once it has been refurbished. We also send our swimmers to compete all over the country as well as the London Aquatic Centre  (Where we swim).

If you can't see what you need, contact us and we'll be in touch.
