Welcome to Shepperton Open Water Swim
Our lake is all about swimming first - which makes us a bit different! If you want to swim in open water at a unique location without the hussle and bussle of other activities then come and give us a try.
This is our lake, it's not shared with anyone else. There's no pressure from other users, there are no boats on the lake other than our safety canoes and there's definitely no feeling that you are encroaching on other, more profitable activities.
Our whole philosophy is that we cater for swimmers, we don't mind if you just want to do a leisurely 400m loop or are training for an Ironman or a cross-channel attempt. You want to swim in clean, clear water; you want to have a relaxed atmosphere; you need changing facilities and toilets; you would like a hot drink when you're done. All that, and more, is here for you.
And if you fancy something a bit competitive then we have regular timed swims that you can use to check your progress.
Not sure about getting into open water? Not a problem! We have guided swims for individuals and groups, there's a resident coach to help you progress and there's always a safety crew on standby.
