Introduction to Open Water Swimming


Have you always wanted to experience open water swimming? Well, look no further. I offer taster sessions for individuals or small groups max 6, larger groups we have two coaches. Each session will last about 90 minutes in duration depending on group size, this includes briefings and discussions. The cost includes all equipment except personal items, you will receive a free swim hat. The sessions include how to get started, types of equipment, assessing the risk, entering the water & acclimatizing, top tips, getting swimming, sighting and other useful techniques. Not to mention just taking a moment to enjoy the scenery.

Also look out for Introduction to sea swimming and cold water immersion sessions.

All dates are on the calendar, please go to online bookings, complete the activiy / participation form prior to booking - online bookings and select Intro to Open water swimming from our services, the dates for the Delph include your membership fees & entrance fees hence why more expensive.

"What a nice woman Annie is. Good with all abilities and very reassuring and informative for any newbies and excellent with those swimmers that want to just enjoy themselves Relaxed and fun. A great session."


Wyresdale Park


These are the two main venues that I use, Wyresdale park, Snowhill Lane, Scorton, Preston PR3 1BA. This is a beautiful locations very scenic lots of wildlife too, not to mention the fabulous Applestore Cafe to visit after you swim.

The Delph Watersports Centre is located  at Halfpenny Lane, Eccleston, nr Chorley, Lancashire PR7 5PR. This is a former quarry which now accommodates divers and open water swimmers. You have to be a member here and wetsuits are compulsory, but it is a great location for coaching sessions and it too has a great Cafe perfect to chat over how your session went and what you need to do moving forward.
