Open Water Swimming takes place all year round; May to September on Saturday mornings and Monday evenings and Saturday mornings only during the winter (October to April).
We are located at Lodge Farm Reservoir in Netherton, Dudley, home to Dudley Water Sports Centre just a mile away from Merry Hill Shopping Centre.
We welcome everybody, from people who are new to open water swimming to experienced swimmers.
We use the NOWCA Safety Wristband “scan in and out” system to manage your safety, and this will also record your time and distance. It’s your personal profile on your wrist, you use it to scan yourself in and out of the water, top up with swim credits and it holds your emergency contact details.
If you are new, please sign up online at www.nowca.org before you swim and you will be able to collect your wristband at the reservoir. This wristband can be used at dozens of NOWCA safety accredited lakes/reservoirs all over the country too.
We hire and sell wetsuits and all the kit you need. Children aged 8 to 14 can swim with a responsible paying adult.
