Kingfishers Swimming club will be 40 years old in 2019, a registered charity solely run by a volunteer workforce of over 35 regular staff members, accredited to Swim England and with Swim Mark accreditation.
We are requesting financial support to help Kingfishers provide more aquatic opportunities to members both children and adults in the Scarborough area. Being a coastal town with the sea on our doorstep making sure that as many local children are good strong swimmers is vitally important. We would very much like to grow our membership, upskill our volunteer teaching and coaching team and provide events and equipment to maximise the potential they have. We are a fully inclusive club working with beginners, regional medallists, open water swimmers and triathletes competing at a national level alongside kids with hidden disabilities and adults who are returning to swimming to improve their fitness levels.
Congratulations to our four Kingfisher swimmers who have achieved qualifying times for the annual North East Regional Short Course Championships to be held 3rd & 4th November at Ponds Forge. This is a fantastic achievement for our club & demonstrates that with hard work & dedication to training we can compete at a regional level with the big city clubs.

A Scarborough teenager is joining Kingfisher Swimming Club’s open water team.
14-year-old Maddy Adams and her team are taking part in a cross-channel relay attempt next summer.
The group need to raise around £6,000 for safety boats and crew, special equipment and lots more.
She is starting her fund-raising efforts by singing alongside her musical father Rich Adams (of well-known Scarborough band Stony) at a special concert on Friday 27th July at the Cask.
Maddy will be joined through the evening by a host of talented young performers playing a range of musical styles.
Robyn Keech, who is another singing-swimmer, from Kingfishers’ ranks will also be performing.
As well as performing her own set, Maddy will also join her Dad on stage when the night is rounded off.
“The team need to raise money for safety boats and crew, special equipment and lots of other things.
I have swum in open water competitions for a couple of years but the channel relay would be my biggest challenge yet. I can’t wait.”
The Kingfishers Swimming Club is one of the oldest volunteer-run sports clubs in Scarborough and its Open Water section is going from strength to strength, competing across England and Wales.
Maddy’s dad, Rich Adams, said:
“Joining up with Kingfishers has been inspiring for our family as both of my daughters have swum with the club.
“The volunteers work tirelessly to provide great sporting opportunities for the youngsters.
The whole team needs to raise a great deal of additional funding to attempt something as major as a channel relay.
It’s a pleasure to be able to perform to try to support them – and even better to sing alongside Maddy!”
