Open Water Swimming in Nottingham

Welcome to our beautiful Open Water Swimming lake in Hoveringham. We are proud to operate using the NOWCA safety system.

Our season will start runs from May to September and we operate 3 sessions a week:

  • Thursday 5.30-7.30pm
  • Friday 5.30-7.30pm
  • Saturday 7.30-9.30am

Each swim costs £6 per session for NOWCA members.

Swimmers can swim around our marked out 500m loop in the lake for their open water swimming training.

Nottingham OWS are very fortunate to be located in this beautiful tranquil setting home to Nottingham Sailing Club – come along and join us for a dip!

From the 2019 season and onward we are pleased to offer you the NOWCA RFID safety wristband system which ensures that you are safely checked into the water and safely checked out again.

We are better able to manage your safety in the water using the NOWCA safety wristband and you’ll be able to purchase bulk swims, wetsuit hires plus any other activities and store them on your band, which means, you don’t have to carry cash every time you swim anymore!

On top of this, NOWCA has launched a new App Actio where you’ll be able to purchase your NOWCA band and view your swim stats here!
