ENJOY THE OPEN WATER?
MEET THE REQUIREMENTS
WHAT IS THE SWIM TEST?
All new swimmers to Liquid Leisure Shepperton will be required to attend an Open Water Swimming Induction and Swim Test Session. In this session, swimmers will be shown the courses and talked through safety procedures. This gives us an opportunity to discuss any concerns you may have.
After the induction, swimmers will be required to complete a 100m swim test before being allowed to swim anywhere else in the lake.
WHEN DO I ARRIVE?
Our open swim sessions last for 1 hour, but please arrive half an hour before your session time. This gives us time to give you your safety briefing and take part in the swim induction if needed.
DO I NEED A WETSUIT?
Open water swimming is a sure-fire way to warm you up! If the weather isn’t quite as favourable, or you just fancy staying EXTRA warm you can hire one of our wetsuits from only £5. We’d definitely advise a wetsuit in the spring and winter months!
Wetsuit hire is £5 online or £7.50 on the day. Wetsuits are non-refundable if you decide not to use them on the day.
