Open Water Swimming

For those of you keen to do a bit of open water swimming in the summer, you are almost spoilt for choice.

Venues for training generally start opening up for the season during April and May and with the rapid growth in the sport there are plenty of open water races too. There are races to suit everyone with distances from 1⁄2 a mile to the marathon 10k and in a variety of water conditions from lakes, reservoirs, rivers and the sea.

We have pool time once a week at the Lord Butler Leisure Centre for coached sessions. We cater for most standards but are unable to coach non-swimmers.

Sessions are held on:

Wednesday 20:00 - 21:00 For this session we share the pool with WaldenJNR, the session is coached for the whole hour but the pool reopens to the public at 21:00. During some sessions there may be the opportunity to be filmed whilst swimming and review this with a coach.

Please remember to arrive 15 minutes before the session starts to give yourself time to get changed and be in the water at 20:00 ready to start the session.

Note: there is no training on Bank Holidays.
