Hart SC is Hart District’s local competitive swimming club.
It has grown substantially since its humble beginnings in a pool in a back garden in Fleet and today attracts swimmers locally and further afield. Hart SC has two ‘Club nights’ (Sunday and Thursday) at Hart Leisure Centre when the Club hires the whole pool from 6.30-10pm. Please come down and meet us.
The Club achieved Swim 21 accreditation at competitive development in 2009 and continues to development within this programme. Swim 21 is the ASA’s aquatic quality mark for the development of effective, ethical and sustainable ASA affiliated clubs.
Hart SC relies on the efforts of our volunteers. Meet the Committee and Non-Committee Volunteers here

Hart Swimming Club pulled out all the stops securing several successes at the Hampshire County Championships 2016: Erik Scott swam a marvelous 50m Backstroke race (boys age 12 group) and was rewarded with our first medal of the Champs, a Bronze! His time of 35.94 (PB) also qualifies him to compete at the Regional Championships later this year. Two further Bronze medals were secured by Ed Nye in the Boy’s Age 15 100 Freestyle with a time of 59.38, and Steph Roberts in the Women’s Age 16&Over 400 IM (5:30.82). Congratulations Erik, Ed and Steph!!!
Ben Walton also achieved Regional qualifying times in the 50m Breaststroke twice: 42.46 (6th place) in the qualifying race and 42.09 in the 50m Breastroke Final coming 7th.
The Counties saw swimmers set several new Club Records - some because they had not previously been set, but the fact that we now have swimmers competing in these events and setting times that Hart SC had not recorded before is an excellent achievement. Well done to Ed Nye who set 4 new Club Records, Steph Roberts and Matt Farmiloe who each set 3, and Sophia Wallis and Dan Eves who each set 2 (Club Record results).
