Flitwick Dolphins Swimming Club has been at the heart of the local community for over 25 years offering an environment for all ages to train and compete in the wonderful sports discipline of swimming. The club has a wide range of squads that suit all abilities and ages with swimmers from the age of 7 right up to adult Masters Swimmers as well as catering for disability and para-swimmers. The club conducts its training both at indoor swimming pools and also offers Open Water training with a squad of mixed ages and open water distance capability.

The ethos behind the way that the club operates is to strive to be able to open up opportunities for anyone who wants to swim and compete and for each member to be provided with the right training environment so that they are able to reach their full potential.

The club has an outreach programme which extends into local schools in the Flitwick and surrounding areas and a vibrant, regularly updated website full of information allowing access for enquiries to be made about joining the club.

The key to the club's success and well running and the ability for the club to open up opportunities for the wider community is its amazing army of volunteers. The volunteers are made up of parents and swimmers too. There are extended family members including grandparents volunteering, carrying out such roles as assisting with fundraising and events. Parents and swimmers who are ASA registered carry out roles such as assisting coaches, officiating and helping at swimming competitions as well as conducting important, behind the scenes work, all on a voluntary basis for the club, its members and swimmers.

This would not be possible without the brilliant volunteers who work tirelessly at the club and who deserve this community award for everything they do and the time they give up to create such a caring and supportive environment for all its members .

In being able to offer to the community access to a well organised and well-run swimming club, Flitwick Dolphins are exemplary in their service to both the local community as well as wider community and the sport of swimming by offering support and excellent training at a grassroots level.
