Sedgefield 75 Swimming Club is a club of around 150 swimmers and, as the name suggests, it was formed in 1975 to provide competitive swimming for people in the geographic area now covered by Sedgefield Borough Council. Training takes place at Aycliffe Leisure Centre.
The club caters for swimmers of all abilities that are confident swimming in a 25m pool. The Club is split into different squads, depending on ability. The club has recently formed a 'Para - Olympic' Squad for school aged children with disabilities. These sessions are held at Aycliffe Leisure Centre on a Sunday afternoon from 2.00pm until 4.00pm.
The founder members, Cyril & Sylvia Harris, both taught swimming and Cyril went on to become Chairman until 1985. Both are now Life Members of the Club.
The Chief Coach up until 1982 was Fred Hall, when John Moore, the present Chief Coach took up the post.
The club has always done well at N & D, NEC and National Age Group events, also Angela Lambert and Samantha Purvis both swam at International Level.
