Open Water Swimming – From May to September

ow swim

The club have secured our own slot for open water swimming at Hall Croft Farm (formerly The Lavender Patch) at Hilton on Thursday evenings from 18:00 – 19:30 (Times may extend if sufficient safety cover)

For those not familiar with the venue, it is just off Uttoxeter Road as you enter Hilton from the Hatton side. The sign currently still says The Lavender Patch.

There is plenty of parking near the water but please do not damage the crops. Please take care, coming down the driveway as it is single track for the first 50m with no passing place.

All swimming will take place in a wetsuit subject to water temperature.  A bright coloured swim cap is compulsory . There are no changing facilities so please change discreetly.

You will have to sign a disclaimer and read the risk assessment (both once for the season), and register going in and out of the water every time for safety reasons.

The cost of the session is £4 to members and £5 to non-members. NB There are no concessions or reciprocal club arrangements.

We always require cover for registering and for a spotter at each session. Volunteering to cover part of a couple of sessions at some point would be greatly appreciated and enable everyone to get a swim each time.

Please note this is an un-coached session.

Please take your rubbish home with you. No dogs allowed.
