ALL ADULTS will be required to have a minimum standard of swimming. To attend sessions, you will be expected to be able to swim 400m freestyle non-stop (not fast, just non-stop).

Swim sessions are currently postponed due to Covid and the closure of the Life Centre until further notice.

All of the scheduled club sessions are held either at the Plymouth Life Centre or Mount Batten Centre (Open Water) with details as follows:


Open Water Swimming*:  6.30pm to 7.30pm at the slipway next to the Mount Batten Centre.mountbatten-1358452746

*These sessions run from around April to September, weather dependent.

Junior Open Water Swimming: 17:45 (£2.00)  at the slipway next to the Mount Batten Centre (this session will be run by Level 2 coach Matt Searl)
