From its humble beginnings in 2003, our London club has gone from strength to strength but we have never forgotten who we are. We welcome everyone, regardless of background and abilities. Our training sessions cater for all levels, from total novices, pro athletes to age-group winners. Thanks to our supportive atmosphere, we inspire each other to go that little bit further and achieve our goals.
In addition to our outstanding training programmes and sporting performances, all of our coaches and committee members are volunteers, offering high-quality advice, experience, help and support to benefit our members.
You’ll find a great social scene at Ful-on Tri, with weekly pub nights after training and plenty of events throughout the year. We have a 50:50 male:female ratio so the club has a great balance and atmosphere.
Above all, we ensure that everyone feels included and supported. At Ful-on Tri, we love to share our knowledge, from swim technique to the best flapjack recipes, as we feel it is the best way to create new personal bests and fantastic friendships.
A LITTLE HISTORY
2003 is when it all began. Following a swim training programme, a group of friends decided to combine their efforts to make it easier for them to race and train together. Under the guidance of triathlon coaches, Alan Hanley, Chris Spink and Julia Tregaskis, our club was born. Kudos to Gareth Davies who cleverly combined geographical knowledge and passion for the sport to suggest the name, Ful-on Tri triathlon club.
Meanwhile, Siobhan Brownlow used all of her artistic talent to create our logo. What is now known as Virgin Active Fulham Pools was chosen as the London base and fortress. Eventually, the first formal Ful-on Tri session took place on 10th April 2003, long before the Brownlee Brothers were even known to the general public.
