The Angels are the synchronised swimming group of Out to Swim, an LGBT Masters Aquatics Club based in London and Brighton. Our aim is to provide coached synchro to men and women, for those who want to take part in the sport for general fitness or to train for competition. Out to Swim is the first swimming club in the UK to offer the sport to both men and women.
We are a team of 20 male and female swimmers of various ages and abilities. We have competed in the UK and internationally and won various medals, including gold at the Gay Games in Cologne. Out to Swim was the first club to field a mixed duet at the ASA Masters competition in the UK.
Synchro challenge 2017
We are seeking 20-30 men to take on the challenge of learning synchronised swimming over 6 months, culminating in a display at the London Aquatics Centre, home to the London Olympics. This pioneering course is support by the Amateur Swimming Association. More info here.
We train continuously throughout the year to improve our individual skills, and to prepare for competitions. We hold coached training sessions 5.30pm to 7pm every Sunday at the Queen Mother Leisure Centre, 223 Vauxhall Bridge, Pimlico, London SW1V 1EL. We plan to add a Monday evening session later in 2017.
