A-Z of sports and LGB&T friendly clubs in London
Aquatics (See also swimming, water polo, synchronised swimming)
Out To Swim is a swimming, water polo and synchro club for gay men, lesbians, bisexuals, trans people and their friends. Straight men and women are also very welcome.
London swimmers train seven days a week with hour long coached sessions at six venues including pools in the West End, Victoria and London Bridge. On Thursday evening (at Oasis, 8pm) there is a women-only swimming session. We encourage competition at national and international events and strive to create an environment in which LGBT men and women feel welcome and comfortable.
Leftfooters is a fun-based football team made up mainly of gay and lesbian players. We play every Sunday afternoon in Regents Park, and have a laid back approach of ‘jumpers for goalposts’. Our motley bunch includes people who are very good to people who can just about run for 10 minutes at a time, so everyone is welcome, you’ll meet some friendly people and after ‘next goal wins’ we go for a well-earned drink. There is also the opportunity to play in competitive games against other gay teams from around the country, and frequent social gatherings.
