Beverley Barracudas Swimming Club was established in 2006 at East Riding Leisure, Beverley. It is the club’s aim to promote competitive swimming and to train young swimmers from the age of seven upwards to the highest possible standard. The club is run entirely by volunteers who are passionate about swimming and enabling each child to achieve their potential; whether at league, county, regional or national level.

We have opened up a new Humber League which currently consists of beverley Barracudas, Louth Dolphins, Pocklington Dolphins, Scunthorpe Anchor and Cleethorpes & District (CADS) We are also part of the Hull & District Swimming Association, taking part in galas throughout the year.
The club has held Swim England’s prestigious Swim Mark (formerly Swim 21) status since 2015, a quality standard for clubs which recognises high standards of governance, sustainability and effectiveness.
