Join Us
We are a very friendly club, welcoming beginners, top athletes and everyone in between.

We have regular weekly training in swim, bike and run, with qualified club coaches to help you develop your skills and fitness level. We particularly pride ourselves on bringing beginners into the sport, with all disciplines having beginners’ sessions.

Check out our Calendar and Facebook page, there are sessions almost everyday which try to cater for all levels.

Membership runs for 12 months from your date of joining the club, and costs £25 for Seniors and £10 for Juniors members under the age of 18.

Why join us?

Because we’re people just like you, at all levels but with common interests in triathlon, swimming, cycling or running. Plus, you get good company, make friends and training buddies, and get advice and training from our British Triathlon trained coaches. There’s a friendly atmosphere at our swim, cycle and run sessions, they’re a great way to have fun while exercising and share tips and information. Our camaraderie and team spirit is energising and you may find that gives you the extra motivation to keep going, or inspires you to push that bit harder.

We know being new to a club can be daunting, but remember everyone starts somewhere and has been there before you so you will be warmly welcomed to our club family! For a less intimidating introduction to our club we have a team of friendly faces for you to contact and meet, these are our Age Group Reps. Feel free to make contact with any questions you might have, or just to know a friendly face at your next training session.
