Double Water Polo fun for July

The lido management have agreed to one additional Water Polo session giving us double the fun for July. The first takes place Monday 18th July and the second on Tuesday 26th July, so make a note in your diary.

Both sessions start at 8pm, or you can come early to help us set up the goals at 7:40pm. As usual the 1 hour sessions will be led by our wonderful coach Jim who will explain the rules of the game before some basic drill in the water and then a game or two. All ages and abilities are welcome and the more the merrier so please bring a friend.

Water Polo - Brockwell Style

The 2016 Brockwell Water Polo season opened to an unusually chilly 16·2°C start on Tuesday 31st May. Big thanks to everyone who came and braved the low temperature. Also big thanks to our wonderful coach Jim who kept us so busy none of us seemed to notice how cold it was.

Brockwell Water Polo this Summer

Brockwell Swimmers will be running four Water Polo evening sessions this Summer, 8pm to 9pm (after the pool closes) at the deep end of the lido. These aquatic antics will take place on Tuesday 31st May, Thursday 16th June, Tuesday 28th June and Tuesday 26th July.

Sessions are being led by the firm-but-fair coach Jim who last year somehow managed to transform a bunch of beginners into semi-convincing Water Polo players. Miracles can happen! These sessions are definitely for fun, rather than competition and all ages and abilities are welcome.

Get fit for Summer 2016

Local business are supporting the new Brockwell Swimmers club by offering a discount scheme to promote health and fitness to the Herne Hill community. Bon Velo, Dulwich Fitness, Fison Fitness, Health Hub and Intersport Herne Hill are offering 10% discount to Brockwell Swimmer card holders (FREE membership can be registered at

Synch or Swim?

Synchronised swimming returns to Brockwell Lido on Wednesday 4th May, 7pm to 8pm. You can book a block of 4 weeks at £40, or pay-as-you-go at £13 a session.

As well as being great fun, it’s a wonderful way to get fit and a tan at the same time.

There is also the option of arriving early at 6:30pm for a pool-side warm up to get your muscles ready for your aquatic work-out.

Lessons ends on 31st August and the team may be asked to do a short display for the Brockwell Summer Races in July.
