Open Water Swimming is back in the heart of London - 7th Starting May 2016

West Reservoir in Stoke Newington are proud to announce that open water sessions and triathlon training will re-commence every Saturday and Sunday from 7th May.

Open Water Inductions

An induction is intended to ensure you understand the safety aspects and dangers associated with open water swimming. This 60 minute session consists of a classroom based safety and rules talk before changing into your wetsuit (mandatory for all inductees) and entering the water for the acclimatisation phase of the induction. After satisfactory and competent completion, you are entitled to join any of the public sessions. Please click here to book the sessions.
