About Us
Our Swimming Club

Based in East Dorset, Wimborne Wagtails is a local club offering swimming, water therapy, swim awards, galas and social activities to people with a wide range of disabilities and health conditions.  
We became a charity in 2015. 

We welcome members who have a disability, (physical, learning or hidden), who are recovering from an operation or illness or have a health condition which would benefit from swimming.

We are open to members of all ages and their supporting family, carers and friends.


We also have a small volunteer team of trained swim teachers and swim helpers to assist in the water, subject to availability.
