Welcome to Kettering Amateur Swimming Club
Kettering Swimming Club is the premium competitive club within Kettering and the surrounding areas. We are a dynamic and exciting club with a long and proud history. Originally based at the Victoria Baths in Bath Lane Kettering, we moved to our present site on London Road in 1984.
Founded on the 15th of December 1914 the Kettering Men’s Swimming and Water Polo Club had 40 swimmers and 20 committee members. Membership to the club at the time cost 2 shillings and 2 pence (around 12.5p) and pool hire for 1 gala was 1 Guinea (about £1.05). Today’s galas take a minimum of 3 hours pool hire and it costs £60 per hour.
Bob achieved 6th in the Men's 70-74 years 100m Breast Stroke and 4th in the 200m Breast Stroke.
- Congratulations Bob ! "

Since the beginning of January 2016 I have taken on the role of Junior Head Coach. Most of you know me as I was previously Assistant Junior Head Coach. Claire wanted to
I’ve been a member of the club since I was 7 so for
I am looking forward to spending many more years at the club as a swimmer and
A great big thank you to EVERYONE who took part, helped out, made cakes, contributed tombola prizes etc etc for the open day last Sunday. It was a tremendous success, especially as we have never done anything like this before and we are already looking at planning next years’ event! Our swimmers were fantastic in everything they did and showed themselves to be wonderful ambassadors for our club. (they loved the bouncy castles too!). Our coaches worked tirelessly to show why KASC is going from strength to strength and a big thankyou to our parents who worked non-stop and didn’t seem to mind giving up a Sunday to make the day a success! Luckily, the weather was kind too!
The parents of the non-members that I spoke to were really impressed with what our club can offer and their children loved the medals and certificates.
The water polo lads had an impressive stall with videos running and ran a mini-polo session and senior session later and hopefully they have gained some new members! Many thanks to Russel for organising the visit of the fire engine to add to the occasion.
There was a steady stream of buyers for the tableful of cakes that were donated and the tombola ‘machine’ worked non-stop throughout the day with an impressive display of prizes from large to small with something for everyone.
We made £265 on the day and more importantly, there were a number of children on the day who are now keen to join our club.
I do have some cake boxes with names on that I will get back to their owners but I have a few others and a white tray that I’m not sure whose they are. If you let me know who, I can get them back to you.
KASC are pleased to be competing in the county sprint meet to be held at Rugby pool on September 17th.
Attached are the program of events, qualifying times and entry form.
I would encourage all to enter if you have qualifying times as it is a great meet and is a licensed meet so a chance for a regional time.
It is £4 an event which needs to be paid in cash or by cheque to Kettering Amateur Swimming Club by August 27th.
All entry forms and accompanying payment should go to your coach or myself by this date at the latest.
If you have any questions or problems please see your coach.
