Elton Reservoir is fit for swimming again and the water is looking good so we are going to do 3 open water sessions on Tue 23rd and 30th August from 5 to 8pm and 6th Sept from 5 to 7.30pm to finish off the 2016 season. There will be no registration fee so the swim will be £5 adults, £3 juniors (there is a discount for full BTC members). Swimmers must be able to swim 500m non stop. Coached session for improvers/novices 6.30 to 7.15 each week. We will still need an up to date registration/membership form for each swimmer. To save you can fill it out in Google Forms. The club has new showers and changing rooms and current water temp is 19 degrees C. We have a few wetsuits to lend but not many so can't promise to have your exact size. Please bring a brightly coloured swim cap or you must use one of ours
