Tornadoes is a competitive swimming club, offering everything from lessons for new swimmers to squad training for more advanced swimmers. We also offer landtraining, masters swimming and have a popular dive club that meets on a Saturday so there really is something for everyone.
Tornadoes has its base at the Osprey leisure centre on Portland, which was formerly the navy's private leisure facility, but if you haven't visited in a while, come down to see the recent changes to the reception area!
Lots of our swimmers compete in other sports and we are proud of our particularly close links with Dorset Pentathletes. We have club members who regularly take part in triathlons, biathles and biathlons and who also enjoy playing water polo.
If you have questions about our club, please contact our club secretary Sharon, or come down during one of training sessions to see how we work!
We look forward to seeing you soon!
