OW swimmers at Race Hub

Our lake is tested monthly to ensure it meets EU safety standards.

Swimmers can do circular laps of the lake around the central island (approx 650m/lap). On Monday evenings we will have adult swimmers swimming a circuit around the left hand side of the lake and junior swimmers doing a shorter circuit to the right hand side of the lake.

Perfect for novices or experienced swimmers.

This lake is shallow enough for those who are less confident in open water.

Group bookings/sole use available – please get in touch.

Parking – Please park in 2 rows on the grass area immediately to the left of the Race Hub entrance gate – filling along the hedge line first. Overflow parking is available in the golf course car park. Please DO NOT park along fence of the horse field or along the golf course driveway and Race Hub Driveway as tractors need access and horses may damage you cars.
