bathe

Here is my best explanation:

'go swimming' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'club that chap joined' is the wordplay.
'club' becomes 'bat' (I've seen this before).
'that chap' becomes 'he' (**).
'joined' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'bat'+'he'='BATHE'

'to' acts as a link.
