After setting the standard for offering open water swimming throughout COVID-19 in 2020 we are excited to be back open from the 2nd of April 2021.
Our swimming is only available for those training for events or who enjoy long distance swimming.
You must be happy to swim 400m unaided, without stopping (16 lengths of a standard pool). You must be at least 18 years of age.
Our set up consists of two triangular courses set one inside the other, this is separated from the hire by a line of buoys. These two Triangles are 800m and 400m.
To swim you will have needed to book a slot and to either be a member or have registered for PAYG at least 24 hours before.
All swimmers will require a bright swim hat or tow float.
Our unlimited membership for 2021 will be £140,
equivalent to swimming once a week across the 6 months!
Pay As You Go
We have brought back our PAYG option for 2021.
We charge £10 registration and only £5/swim.
