Founder / Head Coach
Alison rediscovered her passion for the water during a break from corporate life when a friend asked her to teach him how to swim in 2014. Since then she retrained as a Learn to Swim Teacher and Swim Coach and set up Alison Tam Swimming and quickly established a loyal following of students of all ages from four months old to adults – her Baby & Toddler and Domestic Helper swimming classes are particularly popular. She is a part of the Fitness and Wellness team at The Landmark Mandarin Oriental Spa and coaches her Master’s swim team at Fastlane Swimming.
Meanwhile, Alison is also a competitive master swimmer and currently holds a number of Hong Kong records for her age group in various events for backstroke, butterfly and freestyle. Recently at the World Masters Swimming Championship in 2019 she placed third in 50m backstroke and 6th in 100m backstroke in her age group; and was part of the ladies 4 x 50m freestyle relay team to have the 10th all time fastest time in the world for her age category.
