Open Social Swims

During the months of June, July and August we have special swims on one Friday that we call ‘Open Social Swims’.

In 2020 these ‘Open Social Swims’ will take place on Friday 12 June, Friday 10 July and Friday 21 August. We aim to enter the water at 6:30pm. Changing rooms with toilets and showers are available.
