Open Water Swimming

Open Water Swimming is one of the fastest growing outdoor water sports in the country, whether you are looking for a casual open water venue in which to enjoy natural recreational swimming, or you require a competitive training venue to help improve your athletic performance. Everyone, of all ages and swim levels, is welcome at Bewl Water. TriSwim can provide both the platform and the guidance to enable each and every person to work towards and achieve their swimming goals, whatever those might be. As Kent’s only Certified Swim Smooth Centre, we are the best in the industry to help you towards your wild swimming goals.


TriSwim’s overall aim is to empower you to explore the open water environment and enjoy the experience that only swimming in beautiful open water can provide.


This said, starting to swim in open water can be a daunting prospect for anyone new to it. TriSwim’s expert Swim Smooth background and safety staff encourage, teach and support every swimmer, so that apprehension can quickly become confidence.


There is also an increasing connection between open water swimmers and triathletes as they regularly swim alongside each other at open water swimming sessions taking place around the country.


The open water swimming will take place opposite the Boat House at Bewl Water, where the TriSwim team, registration and changing rooms are located. We will only take online bookings, in advance. For more details click here.
