History
History
Epsom District Swimming Club was merged from two clubs, Epsom and Ewell Ladies and Mens Swimming Clubs. In 1979, the name of Epsom and Ewell Swimming Clubs were changed to Epsom District Swimming Club, (EDSC).
The first chief coach of EDSC was David Stiling, who was joined by Rose Reed, as his assistant coach, and together they worked to improve the swimmers overall performances.

Reg Pluck became head coach in 1980 followed quickly by Mick Shave from Cheam Ladies Swimming Club. By the end of 1981 EDSC was already one of the top 3 teams in Surrey, with a well attended annual Open Gala. By the end of 1982, the top swimmers were training several nights a week at the "Centre of Excellence" in Crystal Palace.

In 1983 Rose Reed became head coach with Roy Palmer assisting. By now EDSC was the top club in Surrey. The clubs stature was such that when EDSC joined the Thameside League (1984), and Rother League (1985) they were automatically placed in the first division.

In 1987 Mick Moylan took over as chief coach with Joan McHaffie the new assistant coach. Epsom's top squad still trained at Crystal Palace under Mick with Joan coaching the remainder. In 1988 EDSC reaped its just rewards, at the Surrey County Championships, EDSC were the overall best club in Surrey with 21 GOLDS, 22 SILVERS, and 17 BRONZES, and had been finalists in Speedo League South Division 1 a considerable achievement.

In 1988 John Cardwell and Pam Wade took over as the main coaches for a brief period followed by Ivor McKenzie-Lee as Chief Coach. and Peter Wyatt as assistant coach. Jean Alexander retired from the committee, and was made life vice-president for all her hard work for the club.

Over the next few years the club was slowly built back up, getting a few swimmers into the nationals, and establishing respectable placing in both the Speedo and Rother Leagues. A club tour of Exeter was held in August 1992, and was a great success. Peter Wyatt left at the end of 1992, several people (Gill Brown, Carl Hill, Ian Hutchings, Graham McCormick and Stuart North) stepped in to help with coaching the expanding club. A junior section of the club, Seahorses was established for teaching non-swimmers and developing them for the main club.

In early 2003 Jackie Letts became head coach with Debbie Atkinson and Steve Luff assisting. The club was divided into three swimming squads based on ability and Seahorses continued from strength to strength under Peter Stretton's direction.
