Curious about swimming in Groningen? Join the gay and lesbian swimming team, or come visit us for a quick scan. At Zwem Goud, we think it's important for everyone to be able to enjoy sports without having to be worried about their acceptance as gay, lesbian, bisexual or tansgender. There is a big difference in being accepted or not having to be worried about being and showing who you are. At Zwem Goud we provide that safe environment. Hey, we even welcome heterosexuals.
We train on a regular basis in the Helperzwembad, Moddermanlaan 40. That's in the southern part of town. Wednesdays 19:00–20:00 in the 'old' pool (the one on the right) and Fridays 21:00–22:00 in the 'new' pool (the one on the left).
We are serious about swimming, but do have different levels of training, so there's a place for everyone! You will be placed in a lane according to your own level. Each training consists of a program with a different focus like interval training, endurance or technique.
We do not provide for swimming lessons, so if you are not familiar with the swimming pool, we suggest you take some lessons in the basic techniques and then join us to expand your knowledge and strenghten your physique.
Come and check us out! The first 2 training sessions are for free!
