The club was started in 1978 and at that time was called “Grangemouth and District Club for the Disabled”.
Some of the first swims were held in HM Institution, Polmont.
Later the club moved permanently to Grangemouth Sports Complex which is still its home.
In April 1996, at the request of members, and to shake off the disabled label, the club’s name was changed to “The Dolphin Club”. Pupils at Grangemouth High School designed the club’s logo, which we still use today.
In 1998 the club organised a Sponsored Swim in aid of ‘Children in Need’ and raised over £2000. A number of club members appeared live on TV to present the cheque.
In 2002 the club received from Falkirk Sports Council the award for – “Sports Personality of the Year – Disabilities Team”.
Forth Valley Disability Sport in 2003 awarded the club a Certification of Recognition of their Achievement and Dedication to Sport.
In 2003 the club was recognised by HM Revenue and Customs as a “Scottish Charity No: SC034167”.
Every year the club participates in the annual Regional Gala and the accomplished swimmers then go on to represent Forth Valley in the Scottish Senior Swimming Championships.
The club organises a Summer Outing or Special Event every August and in December the highlight of the year is the Christmas Party and Annual Presentation of Awards.
Currently there are over 50 swimming members, plus helpers and many interested and active parents.
