The Club originally installed a new 3 lane practice facility in 2013 with the kind assistance of Calderdale Community Foundation, the CO-OP bank and the ECB. The club men carried out a major upgrade of the facility in March 2022 thanks to a very kind grant of £27,117 from FCC communities foundation. This is now a superb 3 lane training facility.
