UK Cold Water Swimming Championships Make A Splash!

There was a fantastic atmosphere down at Tooting Bec Lido last Saturday, as South London Swimming Club (SLSC) hosted the 7th UK Cold Water Swimming Championships.

Tooting Bec Lido is the largest fresh water pool in England and over 700 brave competitors took part in a variety of races in water as cold as 1.5 degrees Celsius, cheered on by great crowds who were treated to some spectacular swimming performances as well as a spectacular array of hats from those taking part in the ‘Best Hat Of The Day’ Competition!

You can read the full report on the day (including race, best hat & raffle results!) from SLSC here. Congratulations to SLSC and the 180+ volunteers on making the day such a great success.

Tooting Daily PRSS joined the throng to share photos from this colourful day.
