Events for SLSC members

There’s a cup for each Sunday and one for all seasons. We started holding our Sunday morning races at Tooting Bec Lido in 1908. The practice continues to this day, with the Right Honourable Handicapper taking charge, whose dream is that one day we will all touch together. Just being there, we do that anyway.

The Sunday morning races are central to the Club’s sporting and social life, it’s good fun and a great way to catch up with friends and fellow devotees of the Lido, with homemade cakes and coffee in the winter (the café is open in the summer).

The Club holds many other club events including Christmas and New Year races, fun galas against other clubs, a Summer Social, the River Thames swim, training sessions and much more! Club events that are coming up are listed below or posted on the Club notice board at Tooting Bec Lido.
