Application Form / Club Constititution

Membership of the Lion Swimming Club is only open to people with a permanent handicap.

Your attention is drawn to Clause 5 of the club Constitution, in particular the following:
“The Committee shall consider all applications for membership and decide, in each case, whether the disability is sufficient to warrant membership.”

How do I become a member?

To join the Lion Swimming Club is FREE. Please complete the Club's application form giving details of your disability. You can print a copy from this website and bring it with you to any session. Bring your swimming kit as well if you want to start using the pools immediately. Alternatively you can contact us by email or phone to request an application form and ask any questions.

Club members are required to have a Greenwich Card, which can be obtained from the Eltham Centre and costs less for club members than the full Greenwich membership. You will need to state that you belong to the Lion Swimming Club.

Volunteer Helpers Needed

If you can spare a few hours once or twice a month to help our disabled club members use the pools we'd love to hear from you.

We need volunteer helpers for the evening sessions in the Spa pool and for the Sunday morning sessions in all three pools.

You will be asked to keep a note of the members attending the session, welcome any new members and generally keep an eye on everyone along with the lifeguard. Sometimes you will be asked to give assistance to members, such as: putting on shoes; helping with a coat; transferring people in a wheelchair between the changing rooms and the pool; holding open doors, etc.

If you would be interested in becoming a volunteer please could you download and complete the application form here, or alternatively you can find out more information from the people mentioned below.
For more info please contact: David on 020 8855 4277 or Liz on 07793 282088. Alternatively, email us.
