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 

We have 2 sessions running (at 11.15 and 12.00).  

The first session will have 3 lanes in place for lane swimming and will suit those who prefer a quieter swim.  The second session will have one lane in place for lane swimming and then the pool is open.  This is more suitable for the children with their carers and those who prefer a more open swimming session.  We are flexible now as to when you choose to swim on a Saturday and you do not need to keep to strict session times.
