Bigger and better than ever before, the 2015 Championships will be a festival of cold water swimming. As well as the individual freestyle dash and traditional head-up breastroke races, why not grab your mates and enter the team relays? All in water as low as 1°C. Not quite up to a full race? Steel your nerves join in in our Big Splash, a group jump-in in aid of Frank Water and International Inspiration. Both charities run innovative programmes that provide safe water around the world. Then once you’ve braved the chilly depths of the largest unheated freshwater pool in the UK, thaw out in our Finnish sauna and hot tubs.

Fabulous prizes will be awarded for best hat. And once you’ve finished swimming, grab a hot toddy at the Budgie Smuggler’s Arms, check out the host of food stalls and exhibitor stands and marvel at the cornucopia of poolside and aquatic attractions.

Entry for the 6th UK Cold Water Swimming Championships has now closed.

Come and watch the hardy swimmers brave their ice cold races 9am - 3pm and marvel at the fabulous hats at this festival of cold-water fun, competition and bravery at Tooting Bec Lido, the spiritual home of cold water swimming. Spectators welcome, £2 entry on the day.

You can enter the Big Splash on the day, so bring your bathers.
