Whether you are a member of a triathlon club or just looking to do your first open water swim we are what you need. We are based on the outskirts of London in Surrey just between Staines and Chertsey in a lovely little spot. We have parking, hot showers, toilets, refreshments, wetsuits for hire, goggles, hats and lots more on offer to make you experience with us feel more comfortable.

The water of an amazing quality, so clean and tested regularly. Once you start open water swimming with us you will never want to go back to a normal pool or any other open water swimming lake in Surrey.

To make it less daunting for those of you who are just beginning your open water swimming journey. We have carefully selected highly trained, friendly and welcoming staff to help you. We will all be around to get you comfortable in the water, navigate around the different length courses and support you if you feel a bit out of your depth.

We have three excellent course lengths of 400m, 750m and 1500m guided by a Rescue boat and Kayaks at all times.

We run weekly competitions and races which are great for you to assess your performance and get more used to race conditions, swimming in a group or in mass starts.

If you need some help as a beginner open water swimmer or an elite athlete we have the Training and Coaching to advance your skills and confidence, whilst meeting some like minded friends.

Wetsuits are optional to swim in our lake, however you must wear a bright hat for visability
