WINTER CHILL SWIMMING FROM 1st NOVEMBER
WINTER CHILL SWIMMING FROM 1st NOVEMBER
Our boilers are now off and we have started our Winter cold water swimming timetable – like last year we aim to maintain the pool above 12°C and we will be lane swimming Thursday evening, Friday morning and evening, and Saturday morning.
For chill swimming tips and swim kit advice please click here for Shaun’s Chill Swimming Blog.
As always booking is best at beccleslido.com but there will usually be a limited number of tickets available to pay on the gate.
From our experience last year it will take most of November for the water to drop to 12°C and we aim to then maintain the water at that temperature (or a bit higher if we can) so long as it is financially viable to do so, to which end there will be no membership scheme during the Winter and all swims will be £4.50.
Warm showers and hot drinks will be available after all sessions.
