Newquay Surf Life Saving Club

Our clubhouse is situated within the Fistral Surf Complex and we meet there and on other Newquay beaches throughout the summer – usually from the beginning of May to the end of September.  During the remaining months we meet at swimming pools in the local area. 

The club is run in four age groups:-

Sandhoppers – 5 to 7
Nippers   –  7 to 12/13
Youth     –  13 to 18
Seniors   –  19 plus

A committee is responsible for the general running of the club. An AGM is held each year which is open to all members.


To promote water safety, develop beach life saving techniques and to encourage active participation in SLS competitions and SLSGB awards.

To provide facilities for exercise to all members regardless of their ability and to provide equality of opportunity within all aspects of club life.

We provide regular updates via our Facebook pages and have notice boards at the clubhouse where we display information. 


We try to be a very sociable club and  run several social and/or fund raising events throughout the year.  Please support us in our efforts so that we can continue to provide the best possible club environment for yourselves and your children.  Additionally, if you would like to get more involved with the club please speak to any of the committee members.

Training is available for anyone who is interested in helping on a regular basis— which does not have to be every week!
