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.

Swimming News 

QE Leisure Centre will be closed to us from 01/04/24 until at least September. This is for major maintenance works after which we should be allowed to continue to hire the pool. 

We will be swimming from April at Ferndown Leisure Centre in public sessions as we have been unable to find a suitable pool for exclusive use hire.

The times will be 12.50 up to 14.20 for over 50's and 13.35 - 14.20 for all ages.

Your subscription will cover the cost and swimmers unable to swim at Ferndown should cancel their standing order.
