Would You Like To be a Sponsor?

Atlantis Swimming Club, Horsham is an ambitious and growing competitive swimming club. We are not-for-profit and exist to provide young people with the opportunity to take part in a healthy sport and to compete to a high level.

As a club, we would love to continuously improve the standards of our coaching, training and swimming, and to make even more accessible the opportunities available at the club to local people. We have over the years built up a strong tradition of competitive swimming in the Horsham area.

Swimming is Britain's most popular mass participation sport. Many people first learn to swim as an essential life-preserving skill. They soon find it's is a great way to keep fit and there are major health benefits associated with swimming. Swimming is also a sport you can easily continue throughout your life.

One of the great things about competition is the focus and motivation that it gives to young people, providing the reason to train on a regular basis. Competitive swimmers learn early the importance of discipline and organisation if they want to progress.

Swimming demands a huge level of commitment and dedication from those who participate and those who support them. It is for this reason that Atlantis is looking for potential sponsors with whom the Club can build partnership to help develop this great sport locally and to create role models to encourage other young people to become more involved.

We are one of the top clubs in Sussex having won the Sussex League in 2017 and been promoted to the Premier Swimming League . We have produced many Sussex champions over the years and regularly produce medal winners at both Regional and National level

Our biggest costs are securing sufficient pool time and the best available coaching. These costs are met by our members through subscription fees. In addition, our swimmers or their parents spend large sums on kit, entry fees for competitions and travel costs. The Club is also looking to invest in new technology to ensure that we bring to bear the latest techniques to assist improve performance. We would like to continue to develop the Club, whilst at the same time ensuring that what we can offer remains accessible to all.
