About / History

Torfaen Dolphins was formed relatively recently in 2012. It was the amalgamation of two local clubs, Torfaen Swim Squad and Pontypool Dolphins.

Swimming in Torfaen has always been a strength. The two clubs were originally one until a split in 1977, it was then that Torfaen Swim Squad came into being.

They carried on for many years as two highly successful clubs, both producing many swimmers who represented Wales at various Commonwealth Games. Eventually, it was decided in 2011 that they would be stronger together and so it has proved.

We are the only performance club in the Torfaen Borough and we work in very close partnership with Torfaen Leisure Trust, who are a great support.

The vast majority of our coaching staff are former international swimmers who are able to share their vast wealth of knowledge with the youngsters they coach today.

We regularly take swimmers away for competitions or training camps, this is Majorca 2017 with our Performance 1 squad.


Many of our swimmers enjoy taking part in competing in the open water, as well as in the pool.

This event took part in Bryn Bach Park Merthyr in 2017.


A very young team of TD swimmers travelled to Jersey to race in 2017, a great experience for them.
