About Us

Swim-1st Tri Club formed in January 2011 by Lee Basset. With a passion for triathlon and an already successful Swim-1st Academy, Lee wanted to form a friendly adult triathlon club open to all abilities with great coaches and facilities. In 2013 we fulfilled two further goals, we hosted a successful triathlon race and opened Swim-1st Junior Tri Club.

Our Adult Club is based in Crawley and uses the first class facilities at Nuffield Health club in Crawley where on Saturday mornings we have exclusive use of the 6 lane 25m pool. We offer a number of training sessions and rely on volunteers who kindly give up their time to help operate a friendly club.

See our training and membership pages for more information.

Our Junior Club is based in Handcross Park School on Mondays or Wednesday evenings. More Sussex locations and evenings coming soon. Handcross Park School have stunning facilities and we are able to deliver fun, professional coaching by our excellent coaches. With smiles and dedication we see vast improvements and have already seen lots of success from our juniors.

Our Triathlon Race, we deliver a friendly Sprint Triathlon at the end of June in Crawley at Nuffieild Health Club and the beautiful Sussex countryside. Our Sprint triathlon is ideal for beginners or triathletes wanting a fast course.
