Rochford and District Swimming Club (RADS) was founded in 1978 at the request of Rochford District Council with the purpose of developing sport in the district.
Its inception was largely brought about by the completion of the Clements Hall swimming pool, which at the time boasted the only eight-lane 25 metre pool in Essex. This eventually grew into the magnificent leisure centre we know today.
The club meets on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at Clements Hall throughout the whole year, the only exception being over the Christmas period.
HOW THE CLUB IS RUN
Like most other swimming clubs RADS is run and managed by volunteers, members and parents who give their own time in a variety of roles to ensure that the Club runs smoothly and continues to meet its legal obligations and its obligations to the sport.
We welcome new members under our Disability Swimming programme, please call us for full details.
