LONDON (see all venues on map)
MAY BANK HOLIDAY: There are sessions as normal on Saturday (25th) and Sunday (26th) but NOT Monday (27th).
Please note that sessions which are marked as "development lane" are intended for swimmers transitioning out of the lessons. The development lane is by "invitation only" (only because numbers are limited) so please speak to a coach if you feel you would benefit from joining these sessions. For the rest of the club please don't forget that we have the bottom lane on Tuesday evening at ULU and the Sunday session at QMSC for technique/stroke development.
how to join in
Please sign in before each session and do try to arrive at least 15 minutes before pool time. Unfortunately, when the pools reach capacity, those who were last to arrive might not be able to swim. Places are allocated on a first-come basis, so early arrival is strongly recommended, especially for our busiest sessions (currently on Tuesday and Saturday at ULU, and on Sunday at Queen Mother).
If you want to give Out To Swim a try, then please come along to any of our sessions. Your first 3 sessions are free and we hope that you decide to come along again. When you arrive, ask at reception about Out To Swim, then look out for somebody with a list ticking off names and introduce yourself. We usually gather about 30 minutes before swim time and go to the changing rooms about 15 minutes before we begin.
If you are visiting London and are a member of an IGLA or EGLSF-affiliated club then your first ten sessions in any twelve month period are free.
If you have visited Out to Swim or tried it for the first time, please consider taking 5 minutes to complete our survey. This will help us to improve the club. Thank you!
