Faversham Swimming Club was established in 1965 as a seasonal club at a time when the town had only an outdoor pool.
Junior Water polo. This is a growing section of the club and recently three junior players were selected to represent their region in tournaments. Water polo is enjoying a raised profile nationally and is fast becoming a very popular sport.
We welcome new polo members, they will be subject to a swimming assessment.
