Open Water Swimming

Our open water training sessions have been held at Tyram Lakes for several years:

Tyram Lakes
Bawtry Road, A614
Hatfield Woodhouse

Tyram is an excellent venue with generally warm (for England!) waters that kept clean through the fact that the lake is connected to others and has a slight river-like directional flow which keeps everything moving along nicely. Temperatures average 11 degrees in the colder months, rising to 18/20 in July and August.

For 2016, sessions will be starting on April 30th, and we expect to be able to offer sessions until mid September.

Sessions are held on Saturdays, with registration open from 08:30 to 10:00 and swimming available between 09:00 and 11:00.

In addition to swim training, we also organise the Swim With Other Teams (SWOT) event at Tyram, as well as the Tyram Tri-Counties Triathlon which you can enter as a swimmer only as part of a relay team – check the individual events pages for more information on these fun days out.
