TriSwim Open Water

We are for everyone

We have a venue for you, whether you are looking for a casual open water venue in which to enjoy natural recreational swimming, or whether you require a competitive training venue to help improve your athletic performance. Everyone, of all ages and swim levels, is welcome at our venues, and we actively encourage juniors from age 7/8+ to join us in the open water environment. We 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 swimming goals.

Our aim is simple

Our overall aim is to empower you to explore the pool and 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.
