Thorpe Open Water Swimming is now Closed
We are absolutely devastated to have to share the shocking news that Thorpe Open Water Swimming is now closed, effective immediately.
There will be no swimming at the lake from this season onwards.
This decision was taken by the Lake Owners and was entirely out of our hands. After ten years running the open water swimming, we have just been given one months notice.
We are now really focussed on trying to find a replacement local lake for all our swimmers, but so far we’ve had no success. If you know of a venue that would be suitable for open water swimming, either already running sessions or looking for a safety team/system to run it, please do let us know here and we’ll look into it immediately.
Please take a look here on our NOWCA website to find the nearest venue to you so that you can continue your open water swimming journey. There are some wonderful venues not too far away including Denham and Heron.
We have made some wonderful friends over the past few years and we are truly sorry that we won’t be sharing a laugh with you at the side of the lake each week. We have been overwhelmed by your messages of support since our email and we will reply to you all personally as soon as we can.
If you have questions at all, please don’t hesitate to get in touch here
We hope to see you all again really soon
From all the team at Thorpe Open Water Swimming
