Welcome back!


Welcome back! It is three weeks today since Tooting Bec Lido re-opened. We are all getting used to the new regulations at the Lido. It has been a huge learning curve for all concerned: swimmers, Places Leisure staff and the SLSC membership team who have volunteered many, many hours to get members registered with Places Leisure’s booking system. Thank you all for your patience and understanding.

All swims at Tooting Bec Lido have to be booked through the Places Leisure website, whether or not you are an SLSC member. The booking system is used for all Places Leisure centres and is struggling under the pressure of numbers as centres re-open. It is very frustrating. Lido staff are feeding back the issues with the booking and membership system to their IT department, so it will hopefully settle down soon. Be assured that outside of the early morning sessions there are plenty of spaces to book and it is usually possible to book a swim on the day.

There are new Family Swims at Tooting Bec Lido on Sundays from 12.00-12.45 pm available to book on the Places Leisure website.

The Tooting Bec Lido management team and lifeguards are following government guidelines to keep us all safe and the Lido open during the pandemic. They are working hard to make our visits to the Lido as pleasant and enjoyable as possible for all. Thank you for following the lifeguards’ instructions during your visit.
