Meet Pippa Clark, Managing Director of Hamilton Aquatics UAE, recognized as one of the largest swimming academies in the Middle East.

Hailing from a family of world record-breaking swimmers and representing Great Britain in her teenage years, Pippa deeply understood the transformative power of swimming after being immersed in the sport during her youth which sparked a strong passion. After leaving the UK, Pippa flew to Dubai with high hopes of building a career in the accounting field with her husband who is also a coach at Hamilton Aquatics UAE.

As an ex swimmer and qualified swimming teacher, Pippa has previously worked voluntarily with various other clubs back in the UK. While she actively searched for an accounting job, she went on to embrace a teaching job at Hamilton Aquatics.

After joining Hamilton Aquatics in 2011 as a swimming teacher, Pippa with her keen business mind, swiftly realized that although the academy was already quite successful with its international swimmers by the time she joined, it had a huge potential to help develop the art of swimming further in the region. She realized that combining her love for swimming with her extensive finance and business background will allow her to make a profound impact on the sport in the region which is why she transitioned from poolside and progressively moved upward in the organization, taking on strategic leadership positions. Rather than looking elsewhere for a job, she quickly progressed from being a swimming teacher, to a site manager and then moved on to supporting the development of the finance and operational side of the academy.

With a vision to revolutionize swimming in the region, Pippa seamlessly combined her love for the sport with her extensive business background. An inspiring team leader with an exceptional business mind, Pippa spearheads a talented and dedicated team of experts to continue to push boundaries to develop the academy and elevate the concept of swimming in the region. Under her guidance, Hamilton Aquatics has evolved into a powerhouse, constantly setting new benchmarks in the world of aquatic education.
