Out to Swim South becomes Out to Swim Brighton & Hove

Graham Robson February 1, 2023

Out to Swim South has announced it has changed its name to Out to Swim Brighton & Hove. The club was formed in 2006 when a few members from the London branch, which was formed in 1992 and celebrated its 30th anniversary last year, moved to Brighton and set up the Brighton branch.

One of the reasons for the name change is that the Brighton club is now registered in Sussex, whereas previously the members had been registered in London but living and swimming in Brighton & Hove. The move will also allow the club to participate in local competitions and be more integrated into the local swimming community.

In doing so the Brighton club is now one of the largest, if not the largest masters swimming club in Sussex with over 80 members. This, according to Out to Swim, marks a significant milestone in Brighton & Hove’s sporting community as for the discipline of all masters swimming clubs in Sussex the LGBTQ+ club is the biggest. It is also one of the largest LGBTQ+ sporting clubs in Brighton & Hove.
