about Us

UK’s number one society since 2016

Founded by Shane Taylor and Luke Tiani in late 2015 the Swingers Society started with two friends wanting to learn the game but still enjoy the company of friends. So in 2016 the first Swingers Society event took place at Paultons Park and has gone from strength to strength ever since attracting more players, sponsors and followers to take us where we are today…

Our club is our Family
