Formerly known as the Army Swimming Association, the Army Swimming Union (ASU) was formed in 1920 to manage the Army as a whole, Regular and Reserve, for all aquatic sporting activities.

The following disciplines that the ASU represent are:
– Diving (Since 1920)
– Open Water Swimming (Since 1923)
– Pool Swimming (Since 1920)
– Water Polo (Since 1920)

Proud of all the amazing achievements from Army Swimming, such as the Army Ladies Swimming team who won the UK Armed Forces Sports Team of the year in 2017, the ASU competes in all disciplines and has recently supported swimmers in the World Masters Games Auckland New Zealand 2017 and the European Masters Games Turin 2019, where the Army Swimming Masters were recognised for being the most successful Army Sport.  Counting down the days till the World Masters Games Japan 2021 where the ASU will be able to once again showcase what Army Swimming can achieve.
