Swimathon

Our Swimathon has become an annual event and has raised an enormous amount for local charities.


The Rotary Swimathon has become an annual event and is held at Teddington Pool 

 

This event has been running since 2005 and has so far raised over £80,000 for charities. Wifth your involvement the Swimathon will become bigger and better than ever.

Be part of it.     

How can you participate in Rotary Swimathon? Team entries are free. Teams can be any size from one individual up to four members. Charities can enter as many teams as they wish. Each swimmer must get sponsorship for their team. The aim is for teams to swim as many lengths as possible within 55 minutes. You do not need to be an expert swimmer. Experienced swimmers or beginners who can swim a length unaided can take part, as can children, (with parental permission.) You only need to be prepared to give up an hour of your time and get your friends to sponsor you and your team. 

The Swimathon is run by The Rotary Club of Twickenham who organise the event, provide the venue and supervise arrangements on the day. The purpose of the Rotary Swimathon is to raise money for local Charities and for other Charities supported by Rotary International.

Seventy percent of the sponsorship money raised by each team will go to that team’s nominated charity. The balance will go to charities nominated by The Rotary Club of Twickenham (A list of charities supported each year is displayed on the club’s website).

Thank you to everyone who joined the 2018 Rotary Swimathon. We look forward to seeing you, with lots of new faces, for the 2019 event.

So why not get together with friends and family and help your group and local community whilst having a lot of fun?
