OPEN WATER SWIMMING
NOW OPEN FOR 2016!
NOW OPEN FOR 2016!
Liquid Leisure Open Water Swimming opens up its front lake four times a week to cater for all swimmers of all levels. The lake itself accommodates two courses, 200m and 750m, to suit whatever distance you decide to cover during your session. The clearly marked courses enable each swimmer to effortlessly record their distance and map their own progress and/or training schedule. All Swimmers are watched over by an on-site lifeguard should they be required at any point. The site is situated Only 5 Minutes from the M4 & M25 at the UK’s leading Open Water Swim Venue, set on one of the most beautiful private freshwater lakes amongst stunning parkland. The natural sheltering offers great protection from the elements, spoiling us with nice calm waters throughout the year.
Wetsuit hire is provided by Hireawetsuit who have a wide range of wetsuits for both adults & kids. Wetsuit hire is available at every session with prices from £20 for adults & £10 for kids.
Swim Coaching will be available on request please ask in reception.
Liquid Leisure Open Water Swimming have teamed up with Hireawetsuit to offer unparalleled access to the best wetsuits on the market for both hire and purchase.
Hireawetsuit have been providing triathlon wetsuits to organised events for a number of years, while also providing a range of products and services direct to you, the consumer.
The team have a wide range of wetsuits for both adults & kids, offering great prices and flexible hire periods so you will be able to find what you need.
If you are looking to hire or purchase a wetsuit, please be patient, as some mornings get extremely busy.
To avoid disappointment and to guarantee the team have a wetsuit for you on the day, we advise swimmers to pre-book the wetsuit hires online which can be collected at the lake. (To book your hire online visit www.hireawetsuit.co.uk)
– There is a £20 charge with NO deposit per session to hire a wetsuit. (Kids wetsuit hire is £10 per session)
– If you decide to purchase the wetsuit afterwards the staff will refund the hire charge paid on that same session.
All major credit cards and of course cash are accepted.
All the staff are wetsuit experts and experienced athletes in their own right.
They are on hand to make sure you have the right size and talk you through the different suits in the range and answer any questions you might have.
TRY BEFORE YOU BUY:
Buying a wetsuit online or in a shop never gives a true indication of whether a wetsuit fits properly, which is why trying the wetsuit out before you make that purchase will allow you to experience the different sizes, but also different price points on offer to see how much quicker and flexible the suits are.
Please note: Your wetsuit will be inspected upon being returned. We expect your suit to be returned in the same condition as it was when you collected it, if any damage has been incurred you will be asked to pay for the repair/ replacement.
We will be holding a FULL MOON Swim Event on the 18th August under the illumination of a FULL MOON – which we are assured will not have a cloud in site!!!!
Join us on Thursday the 18th August for this event at Liquid leisure for our second Full Moon Swim!
Take part in one of the British Summers natural phenomenon’s and experience 1 of only 4 opportunities to swim under a Summer Full Moon with friends, family, training partners and fellow swimmers.
The Full Moon Swim has been around for many years now and apparently dates back over 100years when groups gathered to the shores of lakes, river and sea to experience swimming under full moon lighting up the night.
This is not a race and is not timed, but an experience and opportunity to unwind, relax and enjoy swimming at a different time of the day with like-minded people and celebrate with a BBQ & Music afterwards.
You never know – you might even get to listen to theme from Jaws the movie to help you along your way around the lake…!!!!

ENTRY is £15 per swimmer online.
