Brighton Swimming - About the Club

Out To Swim South (OTSS) is an LGBTQ+ and allies Masters Swimming Club based in Brighton & Hove. We are a group of sociable LGBTQ+ swimmers who swim for fun, fitness or competition. We provide a friendly environment for those who prefer the social aspect. The southern group was established in 2006 and is the relative of London and Bristol’s Out To Swim.

Coaching with Out to swim head coach Michelle at Roedean

We all share an enthusiasm to improve with like minded people and be part of an LGBTQ+ inclusive club. Women and men swim inclusive and non gender specific, we have all ages from 20s to 60s. Out to Swim South is open to all with a positive attitude. The club is an adult club and those under 18 are not able to participate.

We have a put together an FAQ page here to help with further questions


We have sessions in Prince Regent Pool in the centre of Brighton in the week. Our main and most popular weekly session is in Roedean on Saturday, where we have the whole pool to ourselves. During the summer months we also offer open water swimming sessions in sea of Brighton and Hove.

Unfortunately, as pool time is restricted we do not currently provide swimming lessons as part of the above sessions for non-swimmers. Our London Branch offers “Learn to swim lessons”, details can be found here, please be aware that the demand for this is quite high and there is a long waiting list. Alternatively our coaches can recommend local swimming lessons.

How to Join

All new swimmers should get in contact to advise that they are attending in order that we can make sure someone is available to greet you.
