Serving Our Swimming Community Since 1974

Stockport Metro’s vision is to provide swimmers with the optimum environment and the right opportunities at each stage of their development to enable them to achieve excellence. We will continue to strive for gold medal success through the provision of seamless pathways from early skill development to the Olympic podium.

Our Club Is Our Family

Stockport Metro has enjoyed a long history of podium success across all age groups at County, Regional, National and International levels, breaking countless British and Commonwealth records. Since moving to Life Leisure Grand Central fourteen athletes have qualified for the Olympic Games, and the club has produced four Olympic medallists, making it the most successful in British history.

Steve Parry and Graeme Smith both won bronze medals in Athens and Atlanta respectively. Adrian Turner was a semi-finalist in Atlanta. James Goddard, a Commonwealth gold medallist, narrowly missed out on a medal in Athens.

Five Metro swimmers competed in Beijing: Keri-anne Payne who took the silver in the inaugural 10K Marathon Open Water event, Cassie Patten took the bronze in the same event, Michael Rock, James Goddard and David Carry.
