Swimming

The swimming team of Brussels Gay Sports is a group of people from many nationalities getting together in Brussels to enjoy their favourite sport.

Following the core values of BGS, our swimmers not only follow 90 minutes of trainings according to their level, but also have fun and feel comfortable in a community where they can be themselves.

Swimming in an LGBTQI+ friendly environment helps people get together, make new friends and stay in shape.

Our BGS swimmers participate in various tournaments organised by LGBTQI+ clubs in different cities in Europe and in our own Brussels Games every two years, contributing to the visibility of our club abroad, as well as welcoming our friends to Brussels making them feel at home.

 

Due to popularity and limited capacities our lanes are currently full. If you would like your name to be put on our waiting list, please send an email to swimming@bgs.org to express your interest and organise when you can join.
