Cambridge Gala 28/10/17

After a questionable (and slightly concerning) coach journey we made it to Cambridge. As we already know, we are the most superior London team (in and out the pool), and our first competition of the year provided concrete evidence to this claim.

doing a great job as captains!

Exceptional swims all round from the fresh and the old:

Female stand out performance has to go to Becca Lin for smashing the 100IM and then proceeding to ‘take one for the team’ and do the 100Breast in style.

Male stand out goes to our Canadian machine… Will, for his 100IM victory, whose great performance was arguably down to the use of skins (or possibly the fact he swam at the commonwealths?).

Despite intense pressure from the paparazzi to “werk it” and “quickly pose for a relay pic” as we were about to get on the blocks, we claimed SECOND PLACE overall!!! Our best ever finish!!!! Exciting times lads… Bring on BUCS!

For those who came down to support, you’re not forgotten:

we are the best cheerleaders, possibly because we’re the only team of supporters


Not forgetting our wonderful ALPHABET SOCIALS!


look at that amount of chinese food we ate

We went as Ali G, Bob the Builder, Electricians, Gladiator, Harry Potter, Joker, Kit Kat, Maid, Oreos… and you get it, we form the alphabet picture book you will give to a baby. Great job everyone for dressing up!

If you want to join us for our next event, CHECK US OUT HERE.

Shark Run & Cambridge!

Give-it-a-go fortnight is officially over!

Thank you everyone who signed up and turned up for our training sessions. We hope you like it and want more! If that’s the case, from this week on, we need you to have membership. Head over to the Students’ Union webpage (link here) to get them now!

And if you’ve joined us in last week’s Glitter Social, you will know how lit it is


we occupied the entire top deck of bus 73. blur photo soz.

If fomo has hit you, don’t worry because our two MAJOR SOCIALS are coming up and here are the details!

  1. Shark Run (Event link HERE )
    What’s better than one shark running after *drunk* you? TWO SHARKS! Our infamous annual pub crawl is here and it’s really the one event that you must not miss. I’d skip my 9am for this (kidding, guys go for both socials and lectures).
  2. Cambridge Gala (Event link HERE )
    Competitive swimmers will compete and non-competing people will drink and show solidarity by the poolside. the more shots down the more chances we stand to win this gala! And after that we will have the BEST out-of-town social ever, you might even forget to catch the coach back with us (it happened before, you don’t want us to leave you, really).

More updates to come! If you haven’t already followed us on our Facebook page and group and Instagram (@ucl.swimstagram), go right now!

AGM 2015

Note from the President regarding AGM, taking place Monday 23rd March 2015 at 6pm in the Harrie Massey Lecture Theatre.

That time of year where we’ll need to put together a new committee for the following year is almost upon us!

This is the most important event of the year so please put this one in your diaries!

Afterwards, we’ll also organise a social + dinner (probably the last of the term!). more info to come soon.

The positions on offer with short descriptions are as follows:

President – is essentially responsible for all club affairs, and is the official point of contact for the members and the union. Basically you organise and delegate. Only current committee members can run.

Treasurer – 2nd in command, so the 2nd most important role! Treasurer is responsible for all finances. Responsibilities include drawing up a budget for the year, applying for grants, budgeting for events. They are responsible for making sure the club doesn’t go into debt 🙂

Vice-President – newly created position who is essentially a fixtures secretary. Will be in charge of booking facilities + accommodation + travel for training, tour and competitions. A really vital role!

Men’s + Women’s Captain – is in charge of picking the BUCS + competitive teams, entering it teams to competitions, writing sets, communicating with the coach and generally promoting team spirit!

Fitness Captain – A role created to ensure the fitness squad (the largest portion of the club) feels more integrated. Responds to a lot of member queries, writes sets + coaches the fitness squad, and again just acts as a welcoming member of the committee.

Social Secretaries (x2) – Is in charge of extra curricular social activities. You book venues, promote events and essentially be the life and soul of social events.

Engagement and Community Officer – Is responsible for all sponsorship, alumni and volunteering related affairs. Such as acting as the official contact with our new sponsor, keeping in contact with UCLUSC alumni, and organising volunteering + sponsorship events.

Marketing Officer – is the creative mind of the club. Essentially we need someone with an eye for design who can design kit, posters, banners etc. and can also be in charge of publicising the club, whether just in general or for a specific social/volunteering/sponsorship event. Will liaise with Social secs and engagement officer a lot.

If you’d like anymore info, don’t hesitate to contact me.

Please all of you come to run and vote on the new committee!!
