The Swimming Club

One of the few sports activities in IIT, where we now boast about several National level swimmers; one of those activities that dispels the running myth that IIT students just study,study and .......! The Swimming club started functioning in 1983. Since then, every year, one or more swimmers, have regularly been selected by Maharashtra, to represent the State at the Nationals. Several campus youngsters have got motivated to join, and have excelled at the sub-junior/junior level. The IIT Swimming club regularly holds NSO swimming activities for students.
