Out to Swim South was established in 2006 and is a very friendly group located on the South Coast. We have three sessions a week, a workout programme each session and lanes for different speeds, currently Mondays and Saturdays are both coached, and Thursdays we have set but no swim coach.
We have all abilities of swimmers from those who have just started and swim for fitness, to those who have been swimming all their lives and enter competitions. We all share an enthusiasm to improve and swim with like minded people and be part of an LGBT inclusive club. Women and men swim, and we have all ages swimming from 20s to 60s, it is open to all who come with a positive attitude.
Your first swim is free with us! After that it's £7 per session or £5 a session for those on low income, this includes your entry to the pool as well as the workout/coached session. We meet in the seated area to the right hand side of the entrance at Prince Regent. You don't need to pay at the reception desk, speak to any of the people sat down and ask if they are part of Out to Swim South - please meet us 15 mins before the session starts, to check in and pay prior to changing. On your fourth session we ask that you register as a member of the club and pay a one-off payment of £13 for the basic level of ASA insurance cover (Category 1) to last until 31st December (this is renewed annually in January whatever time of the year you join).
We have sessions in Prince Regent Pool in the centre of Brighton in the week. Our main and most popular weekly session is in Roedean on Saturday, head to Venues & Times for full details. We have the whole pool to ourselves.
Mondays 8:30-9:30pm and Thursdays 7:30-8:30pm
at the Prince Regent Swimming Complex every week. Do not pay at the reception but simply meet us in the lounge area to the right of the entrance.
Saturday at Roedean School 5 to 6 pm
To get to the pool at Roedean, drive up to the gates, they will open
automatically, then follow the road over the mini roundabout, then up to
the top, where the road veers towards the left slightly, follow the road
along, then if you look to your right there is a sharp turn, the pool is
accessed from car park at the bottom of this turning.
If you are driving, please park in the TTIP Car park which is on the
right before the turning for the pool (we are not permitted to park in
the car park in front of the pool). Cyclists can bring cycles into the
The closest bus stop is Roedean School (which is the stop after Roedean
Cafe), numbers 12, 12a, 14 and 27 go east from North Street (stop C) and
the Sea Life Centre (stop K) along Marine Parade towards Rottingdean.
The entrance is not the one facing the main road, just walk back a few
metres and follow the pathway along the fence through the meadow to the
gate. For road vehicles the gate opens automatically by sensor, so you
can either wait for a car or a cyclist to trigger the gate, or call the
reception and tell them you are with OTSS
If you need a lift for to Roedean, let us know in advance or post a
request for a lift on our Facebook page (see link below). We often have
other club members driving and a popular pick up spot is in front of the
old AMEX building on Edward Street at around 4:40 PM.
You will be made to feel very welcome and it's not all about swimming, we also have weekly socials on Thursdays (food) and Saturdays (drinks at a bar in Kemp Town). You do not need to contact us to ask to come along, just come along!
