Competitive Squads

Winchester City Penguins Swimming Club has a competitive swimming programme which aims to develop swimmers of all ages and abilities to reach their potential. The programme caters for swimmers training for fitness through to high performance athletes.

The programme is led by Head Performance Coach, Zoe Baker, with a dedicated and passionate team of qualified coaches.

Zoe leads the performance squads within the club having joined from Bournemouth Collegiate School where she developed the highly successful performance swimming programme over 8 years.  Zoe was also coach to the GB swimming team in the pre-London Olympic training camp in Cyprus in 2011 and Head of South West Regional Talent Development.

As a swimmer, Zoe was a four-time world record holder in the 50m breaststroke.  She was a Commonwealth and European Champion and held 12 British, 16 European and 4 Commonwealth records during her career with the British and New Zealand swimming teams.

Under Zoe’s leadership we hope to see further increases in the numbers of swimmers qualifying for all levels of swimming – Development, County, Regional and National, including medallists.
