Swineham Open Water Swimming

A chance to experience swimming in a beautiful peaceful lake....

We are a new NOWCA Validated Lake located in the North of Wareham, Dorset. We are close to Poole Harbour, and a stones throw from the RSPB reserve in Arne.

Cost is £3.00 per person for ONE session only, booking ahead is required.

You need to be able to swim at least 400m non stop to be able to swim at the lake.

Wetsuits are optional.  Adult or youth swimmers only.

By being part of the NOWCA organisation, we adhere to the highest standards of safety, ensuring you are safe for the entire duration of your lake swim.  There will be a qualified open water lifeguard on duty at all times, as well as additional water safety crew on the lake.  There are also several areas close to the marked out courses which are shallow enough to stand up in and these will be marked so that should you need to stop during the swim to adjust goggles etc you will have safe place to do so.

Facilities are available on site, including male and female changing rooms and toilets. Parking is available on site, and in set parking areas only, PLEASE NOTE parking or passing on the grass verges leading up to the lake is strictly forbidden and you will be asked to move and not allowed back to the lake.

Can we please ask all drivers TO DRIVE DEAD SLOW PAST THE HOUSE IN THE LANE so as not to disturb the residents. If you use a radio, please make sure it is turned down at this point. PLEASE SUPPORT US IN THIS so as not to jeopardise our future use of the lake.
Payment required - please see details
