Oxford Swans Sessions and Coronavirus (Covid-19)

As a club, our priority is always for the safety and wellbeing of all our members.

Given the updated government advice outlined in the Prime Minister’s statement on Monday 16th March and with the restrictions on everyone’s lives, it is with regret, and sadness, that we have taken the difficult decision to cancel our weekly swimming sessions at both the Leys and Ferry pools until further notice.

We realise that this will cause disappointment and sadness to many club members, swimmers and helpers alike. We have not reached this decision lightly, but we feel it is really our only option as things stand, and to continue club sessions in the current environment would be irresponsible.

Your membership of the club will not be affected by the cancellation of our club sessions.

We will of course keep the situation under review and, if the situation changes, we will contact everyone again. To be clear, we are not closing the club permanently but rather, postponing club sessions until the current situation becomes clearer and more stable.  We will recommence our sessions just as soon as we can. 

If you are worried about Coronavirus, please seek the latest official guidance from the NHS website.


Oxford Swans is a swimming club for disabled people of all ages. We are a friendly and supportive club. We do a lot of one-to-one work and group activity in the water.
