Sunbeam was founded in 1982 and since then we have done much more than just swim.

We have lots of opportunities for volunteers to get involved.

We take swimmers from 8 years to 108 years!

If you have additional needs or a disability and would like to be able to swim in an inclusive environment, then Sunbeam is the club for you. Contact us for more info.
