Hythe Aqua (formerly Hythe Swimming Club) is based at the South Road swimming pool in Hythe and has been established since 1975. Hythe Aqua has over 500 members, with the majority under 16 years of age.

We are a voluntary organisation and although all our 40+ Teachers and Coaches are qualified, they all give all their time free to the Club.This results in our fees being kept to a minimum and helps to encourage membership from all sections of the community.At Hythe we aim to attract members from the 5 years of age to much older participating in a healthy lifestyle of fitness training within a friendly but competitive environment.
Hythe Aqua is a competitive club and membership of one of competitive sections will lead to swimming in galas, playing Water polo matches, participating in synchronised swimming competitions and taking part in Masters Competitions. If you join one of the competitive sections, you will be expected to compete for the Club in the competitions and championships chosen by the Coaches.
The club is growing and we are always on the lookout for new members and coaching staff; So if you live in the Shepway area lease contact us. The club actively encourages interested parents to obtain both teaching and ASA official's qualifications and in many cases can help fund the necessary training. - Contact us
