Swim: Tuesdays 20:30 Where: Westgate Leisure Chichester
£4 members, £6 non-members
We have the use of all 6 lanes, this allows different abilities to occupy different lanes, meaning faster swimmers are not held up by the slower ones, and those learning or honing their stroke are not swum over by the hotshots.
Each lane is provided with a swim set which is broken down into drills to help improve technique such as the use of kick boards, pull buoys, paddles and fins and many others. In addition, individual tutoring is offered to help people perfect their technique and we follow our own periodised training plan to peak for specific upcoming events.
We encourage people to bring a drink with them and to wear a watch to time lengths etc.
Thursday – additional pool session.
In addition to the closed Tuesday pool club session, members meet on Thursdays at 8pm and swim in the publicly open lanes till 10pm. Cost, payable at reception, depending on membership.
Saturday – beach runs / sea swims
Beach runs often take place on Saturdays meeting at 8am. The normal meeting location is Bracklesham Bay car park, but the location can vary. There is no set distance – it’s at your own preference. Normal distance covered is approximately 16km. If this is too long/short, then plenty of options exist to customise your run. This is followed by breakfast at a local café. The run is a free session.
In the summer months beach runs tend to take place at low tides. During winter months, the frequency is determined by member participation.
From May to September, sea swim sessions take place at Bracklesham Bay at high tides. This tends to be fortnightly. Meet time is normally at 8am depending on tides. We swim around a set of 6 buoys. This is followed by breakfast at a local café. The sea swim is a free session. Please note, sea swimming is down to the individuals responsibility for their own health and safety.
