There are a number of online swimming suppliers. We have teamed up with local supplier Ness Swimwear who have set up a dedicated club page

Club members can use the discount code TYNEASC to get a 5% discount on all items on the site (e.g. swimwear and goggles) as well as the equipment listed on the club pages. The club also receives a small commission on any purchases made using the discount code. If you have any questions about equipment please speak to your coach before making a purchase.
Please name all equipment – a black sharpie generally does the job although it does wear off over time and needs refreshing.
