Both swimmers train with Dacorum Artistic Swimming Club, which was set up in 2008 and currently has more than 55 members.

The steady growth of the club is attributed to many of the swimmers who continue to contribute to the club long after leaving professional swimming, returning as volunteers or coaches.

The club trains at the Everyone Active Leisure Centre most days of the week.
