Welcome to RADS

Rochford and District Swimming Club (RADS) was founded in 1978 at the request of Rochford District Council with the purpose of developing sport in the district.
Its inception was largely brought about by the completion of the Clements Hall swimming pool, which at the time boasted the only eight-lane 25 metre pool in Essex. This eventually grew into the magnificent leisure centre we know today.:
RADS is primarily a competitive club and has enjoyed success in various leagues and in open events.
The club meets on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at Clements Hall throughout the whole year, the only exception being over the Christmas period.
