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?

Fond Farewell to Peter Karl Burgess, Brockwell Lido stalwart

20th December was an extraordinary day in Herne Hill, when first a walk took place in Brockwell Park in memory of avid Lido supporter and former BLU committee member Peter Karl Burgess, then his hearse led cyclists and cars from Brockwell Lido to West Norwood Crematorium, for the funeral. 

Get your Head into Gear

Up to 30% of body heat can be lost through your head so it is important to wrap up warm after a cold swim at the Lido. Our Brockwell Swimmers club hats are made from super soft acrylic and will soon have your bonce back to a comfortable temperature.

We have two styles available, traditional bobble or funky beanie, in either  blue or red (to match our silicon swim caps). They are custom made to order so please allow two to three weeks for delivery.

A Very Hospitable Game

Brockwell Swimmers water polo squad ended the year on a high with another stunning game on Sunday evening (2nd Dec). The team took on its first (and last) non London based opponents of 2018 inviting the Addenbrooke’s Hospital team from Cambridge down to the Brockwell Swimmers winter training venue of St Joseph’s College, Beaulah Hill.

It was the Hospital team which scored the first goal within minutes of the whistle. However, Brockwell Swimmers were quick to respond and score a shot just a few minutes later.
