Open Water Swimming

The Watersports Centre at Tallington Lakes provides an ideal venue for “Open Water Swimming”!

You can swim in one of our clean spring fed lakes here at Tallington Lakes on Wednesday and Thursday evenings between 5-8pm (or earlier depending on light), for just £5 a session, from April to September. Please check  Facebook for start date, when water temperature 12°C. Or buy 10 swims for the price of 8, that’s a big saving!

Or for an even bigger saving, get your hands on an Annual Swim Ticket. Enjoy access to all sessions throughout the season from April to September for only £120.

All participants must complete a disclaimer before entering the water for the first time.

From June through to August the lake will be open every Saturday morning for you early risers. The lake will be open from 8am to 11am.

The lake is marked out with buoys. The outside circuit (pink buoys) is a distance of 750 metres.
