Biography:

Andrew is a former Great Britain aquatic team member, having competed in both the Junior European and World Championships as a water polo player. He is also the Founder and Managing Director of Turner Swim.

Despite being in the U16 International Squad aged just 13, Andrew struggled immensely with his swimming and it was in his teenage years that he spent hours each day redeveloping his swimming technique. Training paid off and he reached his goals, but he later realised a lot of his battles could have been avoided had he focused earlier on technique rather than endless lengths of the pool. After graduating from Manchester University and working on a sales and trading graduate programme at an investment bank, he rekindled his real love, as a full-time swimming instructor. Andrew founded Turner Swim in April 2013.

In his spare time Andrew still plays water polo for his home town club Cheltenham and was part of the squad who won the 2014 British Championships. A regular open water swimmer, his 2017 UK events included the Great London Swim at Royal Victoria docks, the Fix Splash at Hackney as well as the London Dock-2-Dock 10k swim, known in the swimming world as the marathon. In 2018, Andrew completed both the the Bosphorus Swim from Asia to Europe in July, as well as the River Dart 10k in September. Andrew also founded and runs the charity Water4Ethiopia and he has launched the UK’s first volunteer-run charity bottled water brand, winning the 2012 Global Water Innovation Awards Best Humanitarian Initiative.

Andrew finds it particularly rewarding developing water confidence and learn to swim clients as well as those training for a triathlon.
