Backwell Swim Club Case Study

“By far the best club management software for swimming clubs around. It is user friendly, cost-effective and the level of support is second to none! 

I can’t stress enough how much it revolutionised the running of our club!”


Backwell Swimming Club is a competitive community based club, that teaches swimmers from 5 years old through the Learn to Swim programme, right the way through to National, competitive swimmers. The club currently has approximately 180 members.

Before using Swim Club Manager 2 years ago, the club managed their data across a range of systems, with a lot of dependability being on physical paper work that got lost easily, meaning that often swimmers were overlooked or forgotten. As a result of our software, they now have a centralised system that can be accessed easily and that allows the club to communicate with members more effectively. The club particularly benefits from the features for open meets and team galas and the integration with HyTek.
