Open Water Swimming is a truly different experience from the pool, and one all swimmers should try at least once!

Without the confines of lane ropes or walls, it’s liberating, adventurous and unique.

Most people find the freedom and lack of chemicals so invigorating they can’t help coming out of the water feeling happy and relaxed, so whether you are experienced or new to this fast-growing sport, try the new Caversham Lakes experience!

We have three swim courses marked out across the lake from 400m, 750m & 1500m.

Please note: All swimmers must wear a swim hat and all non-wetsuits swimmers must use a tow float.
