Eton has a six-lane 25m indoor swimming pool, which is used for the teaching of swimming and associated pool activities and for recreational purposes.
All boys receive swimming teaching in their first two years in the school and undergo a formal swimming test before being allowed on the river. Boys can also engage in recreational swimming throughout the year.
The school’s three swimming teams (School, Under 16, Under 14) compete against other schools, mainly in the Summer Half, and we regularly enter teams in county and independent schools national competitions. Early morning swimming training exists for our most committed swimmers.
Our three water polo teams (School, Under 16 and Under 15) compete throughout the year against other schools.
The kayaking club is a small but enthusiastic group who train to BCU standards in the indoor pool before venturing forth on rivers in Wales and Scotland.
