Welcome to North Dorset Turbos Swimming Club

The club was established in 2003 to provide opportunities for competitive swimmers in the Gillingham, Shaftesbury, Sturminster Newton and Mere areas to meet and train. Most of our members are aged between 9 and 18 years old and have completed the ASA's National Scheme for swimming.

A magnificent result in the 2019 Challenge Cup hosted by Bridport Barracudas: Turbos came a very close second (234 points) behind winners Burnham-on-Sea (237), with Blandford third (229) then Sherborne Storm (208), Heron (178) and Barracudas (135). Turbos achieved ten first places, winning the thrilling final mixed cannon 10x25m freestyle in which 60 swimmers compete! Head Coach Chris Gassmann said: "Turbos showed excellent team spirit at a meet where the lead was continually changing. Very well done everybody!" Pictured: some of the Turbos Bridport team at the end of the evening.
