A little info about the group, we welcome any person that can already swim to the group, you don't have to be an athlete you just need to love swimming, we do not provide lessons but can recommend swimming coaches to the people that require lessons. We do have some triathletes in the groups as well as competitive swimmers, but the model of the the meets is swim until your heart is content and to your own program if you have on or at your own pace or buddy up with someone and do a joint training session if you wish.

In the beginning we mainly went to London fields lido (which is still one of my fav outdoor pools) We usually go for outdoor swims (winter included), in and around London, but have occasionally ventured indoors. The group has grown beyond any expectations I may have had, I have been lucky in finding people to help hosting meets and with the help of several more organisers we are hoping to get out and explore most of the outdoor venues around London and further afield. Once the open water lakes/ponds open we will be organsing trips to these locations so for anyone who has never tried open water before it is a great opportunity to do so. GLL/Better are running an open water location in London which is great although it will not be free for people holding their swim membership  they are offering a discount, it is an early morning session there and they have had loads of problems with algae.

So an exciting time ahead if you enjoy swimming and enjoy meeting new people that share the love of swimming.

We appreciate any suggestions and look forward to welcoming new members.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
