How does the Swimathon work? 

Each team is given a lane of the pool and will swim for 55 minutes with one team member swimming at a time

On average each swimmer swims about 10-20 lengths over the 55 minutes, but there is no need for each team member to swim the same number of lengths.

Every team member gets sponsorship for the TEAM either by the total number of lengths swum which can be up to 100 lengths or sponsorship for taking part.

The raised money is split between Rotary Phoenix's chosen charities and the team’s chosen charity if one is put forward.

We want all swimmers to have lots of fun whilst trying to swim as many lengths as possible and raise as much sponsorship as they can.

Who can take part?

Anyone over the age of 8!


Each team member who swims will be given a medal on completion of their swim.

What does a team do before the Swimathon?

The team captain needs to download the team entry form, fill it in, scan or take a photo of it and submit it to

For any questions please email:

Whilst a preferred start time can be requested on the Entry Form this cannot be guaranteed.

On the day

Please turn up 45 minutes before your allocated start time. Please register your team at the Rotary welcome area. Note: please bring a £1.00 coin for your locker.

The team assembles poolside 15 minutes prior to their allocated start time. Once the pool is clear please split into 3 swimmers at each end of the pool and await instructions to enter the pool.

Rotary Phoenix members will be available at all stages to of the swim to make sure everyone is organised.
