Open water season kicks into action

1st June 2012

The open water season has now begun with Speedo’s Open Water Series splashing down in Branksome Bay in Poole.

It continues with this weekend’s British Gas Great London Swim where over 5,000 swimmers will join 10k world champion Keri-anne Payne in the Royal Victoria Dock.

As the weather warms up, taking the plunge in a local lido can be a satisfying dip, but why not take it to the next level and register for one of the many open water challenges taking place this summer?

Head to our Open Water Swimming Section to find out how to get started and prepare for your open water swim. Fancy swimming in scenic Lake Windermere in June or marvelling at the splendor of Windsor?

Both the British Gas Great Swim Series and Speedo Open Water Swim Series offer something for all and you can prepare for your swim with advice and training plans in the open water section of our Get Started channel.

Sign up to the ASA School Swimming Charter. We're taking swimming seriously, are you?
