Swim Open Water

Swim Open Water

We are very privildged as a club to have exclusive access to OWS at our local Blithfiled reservoir, in partnership with our friends at the Sailing Club, Thursday evenings from May to September. If it's ever cancelled we will announce it on our facebook page as much in advance as possible for everyone to see.

Our open water swimming sessions are open to the public as well as Stafford Triathlon Club members from May to September 6pm-7:30pm at Blithfield Reservoir Sailing Club (Waters Rd, Rugeley WS15 3DU) there's no need to book, just pay on arrival.

For safety reasons, before anyone can open water swim with us, you MUST bring a signed decleration form with you, be able to swim at least 800m, bring your own wetsuit and have a cap whistle which are also purchasable upon arrival for just £3 each.


Upon arrival at Blithfield Sailing Club please drive through 2 gates then turn right into the car park, then you'll find us inside the Clubhouse (please note the gates may have a padlock wrapped around them but it shouldn't be locked so you can remove it to enter). Friends & family are welcome to spectate, you may also bring dogs but they must stay outside the clubhouse. Whenever the weather is looking good we may announce a picnic by the water after the session.
