Indoors Water Polo is Back

Following a successful Summer season at Brockwell we are moving back indoors, starting Monday 29th July, to Alleyn’s Boys School just 10 minutes up the road from the Lido; drive, cycle or catch the number 37 bus, which stops outside the door. This is a great pool which we have used before so we are looking forward to a full Winter of aquatic mayhem with coach Carl Hill.

Brockwell Lido Users mourn the sudden passing of Chair CJ Faucher

It's with great sadness that Brockwell Lido Users have announced the sudden passing of CJ Faucher, BLU’s Chairperson, on Friday 21st June. CJ was a dear friend and a vital member of our Lido community. A fixture in the gym, CJ unified Lido users by constantly trying to improve Lido services and by pioneering innovative events. He was also supportive of the recent efforts to revive Peckham Lido and active in connection with Friends of Brockwell Park. A book of condolences is currently available to be signed - you can find it at Lido reception.

Monday Evenings Water Polo

The Brockwell Swimmers club started our Monday Water Polo sessions back in the Summer of 2015 led by coach Jim Boucher. They have proved a great success and we have applied (ten months ago) to run them again this year starting with a FREE taster session on 27th May. All adults 18+ welcome.

Local swimming club refused hire of Brockwell Lido

Brockwell Swimmers is a non-profit South London swimming club run by volunteers and based at Brockwell Lido, Herne Hill, London SE24 (this is still owned by Lambeth Council but managed by Fusion Lifestyle). The aims of the club are to encourage more people to swim and more people to use this wonderful Art Deco pool. We currently have over 100 members.

Water Polo Coach

The Brockwell Swimmers club are in urgent need of an ASA level 3 'swimming' coach for their Summer Water Polo sessions at the Lido.

Their Monday evening recreational games have proved a great success over the last four years and helped build the club to over 150 members. The recreational team play indoors during the Winter and were hoping to again brave the colder waters of the Lido for ten Monday evening sessions 8pm starting 27th May.

Get ready to go Wild this Summer

Brockwell Swimmers launch their 2019 Open Water Swimming Calendar with a special seminar from coach Steve Baker.

A Murder Mystery Swim Weekend

Sunday 5th and Monday 6th May.

For a jolly bank holiday brimmed full of action, murder and adventure, Brockwell Swimmers are off to Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door on the Dorset South Coast. Oh how we do like to be beside the seaside!

As if the usual swimming and socialising weren’t already enough to have a spiffing good time, we are throwing in some added mystery, games, murder and mayhem. Here’s the plan…

Tooting Cold Water Championships

Three Brockwell Swimmers relay teams took part in the Tooting Cold Water Swimming Championships held Saturday 26th January 2019. This very impressive event is organised every two years by the South London Swimming Club and attracts cold water devotees from all over the UK and beyond, including teams from Finland, Belgium and East Germany! Great for the sport and also good publicity for Tooting Bec Lido.

PHISH gotta swim 2019

Another year and another Parliament Hill Ice Swim Hootenanny, PHISH 19th Jan 2019, at Brockwell Lido's sister in North London.

This year under new management, the event was just as good, well organised and well attended as previous years. Well done to Jeremy Irvine and his team for pulling off another stonking event with the pool at a perfect 5°C, a deliciously steaming giant hot tub and a sauna heated to the perfect temperature. What more could we ask for?
