South London Harriers Tri Club Swimming

On occasions, we may replace the regular sessions with specific technical sessions for a fixed period.  Numbers on these may be restricted and advance booking required.  If this happens, we'll let you know on the forum.

In February each year we have a club swim challenge.


Currently, our sessions are being led by:

Monday:  Jim Burdett

Wednesday: Gary Laybourne

The coaches often posts details of their sessions on the forum shortly before they start, and it's worth checking there to see if there is any kit to bring. 

Open water swimming

During the summer months, open water sessions are held at Southwater Country Park, Cripplegate Ln, Southwater, Horsham RH13 7UN on Wednesdays from 18:00 and Saturdays from 08:00 (times may vary, please check forum for details).

The cost is a one-off fee of £20 for the whole summer and you get a yellow club swim hat as part of that cost.

South London Harriers is an authorised user of Southwater Lake and any session must be organised under the Club’s name and all rules and procedures adhered to.  In particular, we must have at least three people present at all times when using the lake, so please let a member of the committee know or post on the forum if you are intending to come to one of these sessions. 

Full list of rules for swimming at Southwater

We normally swim at Southwater on most Wednesday nights from late May/early June until late September/early October.  One of the sessions in late summer is a club open water swim championship and the final session of the year is normally held at dusk with food on the pontoon afterwards.
