Each year Torfaen Dolphins develop youth and masters swimmers who are able to compete at national and international level, with the masters in particular, highly successful in some of the most prestigious events. Our philosophy is to develop excellent technique in our younger swimmers providing them with the quality of stroke that enables them to develop into highly competitive swimmers towards their middle teens and beyond.

The club provides a friendly and family type atmosphere where the interest is in providing the platform from which all swimmers, of all abilities, can flourish and reach their full potential. Whether your interest is in swimming competitively, improving or fitness, Torfaen Dolphins has something to offer you.
