The club was founded in 1978 when the old open air pool in Teddington was modernised and reopened as a well-equipped indoor pool. We celebrated our 25th Anniversary in June 2003 with an exciting gala against other local clubs and a family barbecue at Hampton Open Air Pool. A group photograph was taken to mark the anniversary.
