Croydon Amphibians was formed in 1979 from the amalgamation of two established and successful swimming clubs, "Croydon Ladies" and "Amphibians". Many members are still connected with the club today as coaches, parents and helpers.
Croydon Ladies Swimming Club was formed in 1891 and remained all-female until 1979. Amphibians Swimming Club was an all-male club and was formed in 1930 as an amalgamation of Old Swans SC (founded in 1890) and Dolphins SC (founded in 1885).
