Welcome to the website of Clevedon Amateur Swimming Club! We are a friendly club aiming to promote and encourage the sport of competitive swimming. Based in Clevedon in North Somerset, we are affiliated to the Somerset County ASA and the ASA South West, and are accredited to Swim21 club.
The Club operates in a friendly atmosphere which encourages its members to develop in a relaxed but committed environment. Members that show commitment will undoubtedly personally benefit from the results of their hard work, as well as having the satisfaction of being a member of a great team of friends.
We welcome swimmers of all ages and abilities. Swimmers enter into competitive swimming through our progressive squad structure. The Club holds or attends competitions for all ages and abilities. The purpose of this is to provide a natural progression for the swimmer ranging from the Club’s Novice Gala to National Competition.

Our Mini Series swimmers travelled to Kingswood on Saturday for the final round of the Series. Full results are to follow but a spirited and determined performance saw the team fight for 3rd on the night and achieve 3rd place overall in the series for this year. Congratulations to Fran Chambers and her team of swimmers and volunteers!
Meanwhile 28 swimmers travelled over the channel to Newport for the Greater Gwent Open Meet for two busy days of competition. Almost 100 pbs were set, and Amelia Chappell, Callum Greenwood, Sam Hodge, George Leaman, Ella Jenkins, Isobel Major, Ben Penhale and Finlay Smith stormed to 20 gold, 10 silver and 9 bronze medal positions between them. Special mention to Callum for swimming best times in all 10 events he entered (not easy at 17 yrs old!) and Francesca Coveney who had a heavy programme of 12 events, and swam personal bests in all bar one. Also to George and Callum for qualifying for the exciting Skins event, with Callum making it through to the penultimate round against, amongst others, Ieuan Lloyd, Olympic swimmer from 2012 who broke a Welsh National Record during the meet.
A well run, friendly meet, this is definitely one to aim to qualify for for next year!
Information regarding Club Championships day itself – 23rd November at Hutton Moor – is now on our CLUB CHAMPS page. Please make sure your entries are in by Monday 10th November. This is slightly later than in the original conditions.
We look forward to seeing as many there as possible and, as always, invite offers of help on the day. There is the facility to offer your help either as a general helper or as an official, on the entry form. Thanks!
There was some excellent swimming on display at the Club Champs 200 IM. There were numerous new personal best times, as well as Championship Best Times (well done to Clara Finch (8), Amelia Chappell (14), Blayne Stanbrook (9), Ben Penhale (11), George Leaman (15) and Callum Greenwood (17 & Open)). An extra special mention to 8 yr old Malia Smith who showed great determination and calmness to continue with the race unflustered despite her goggles coming off during the backstroke!
The results and new records are now on the Club Champs page.
Thanks to those swimmers and volunteers who helped with the photo shoot request for Hotspring Southwest & Wales. There was the opportunity to swim in the Riptide Swim Spa which those who had brought swimwear were able to take up. We are grateful to Hotspring Southwest and Wales for their sponsorship of the club. Visit their website to see what hot tubs and swim spas they have to offer – HOTSPRING.
The RESULTS from Arena Round 1 have now been published, together with the LEAGUE TABLE after Round 1. We are lying in 19 position (out of 24) but with a good number of gala points, but will need a strong second round! We will let you know details of the next round which will be on SATURDAY 8TH NOVEMBER as soon as they are released.
