Return to Parliament

It was a fantastic turn out for the Brockwell water polo team for the third meeting with our friends from Parliament Hill. Having won a game each so far this year, it was all to play for yesterday evening at St Joseph’s College (Brockwell’s winter training venue).  With only eight players verses Brockwell’s mighty twenty, Parliament Hill gained a share of the Brockwell team for the evening to allow for both sides to have the much welcomed substitutions.  Brockwell’s coach Steve Baker was on refereeing duties for the evening, the whistle was blown and the game began.

North Versus South Swimming Gala

Following on from the success of last years revival gala between Brockwell and Parliament Hill Lidos the Brockwell Lido Swim Team were invited  for a rematch in celebration of Parliament Hill Lido 80th year. The Parliament Hill Lido Swim Team won but Brockwell Lido Swim Team put on a good show and got in a several wins against tough opposition. The Brockwell Lido team ranged in ages from 26 to 71 and included representation from Brockwell Icicles, Streamline Swims and individual swimmers.

Brockwell Water Polo 2017

Brockwell Swimmers have announced the dates for Water Polo 2017. For the colder months they have six indoor sessions at the nearby Alleyn’s School indoor pool in Dulwich, and then eight outdoor sessions at the Lido when the weather, and the water, get a little warmer.

Gala Day at the Tooting Championships

A gala day was had by Brockwell Swimmers at the seventh Tooting Cold Water Swimming Championships 2017. Our first two teams came a disappointing second to last in the relays, but triumphed in our third race by coming sixth out of six. Result!

An amazing day full of fun and lots of cold water. Hats off to the South London Swimming Club and all their hard working volunteers for running such an amazing event. We look forward to their Invitation Gala happening in March.

Brockwell Swimmers go PHISHing

Brockwell Swimmers travalled up north to swim at the annual Parliament Hill Ice Swim Hootenanny (PHISH) on Saturday 21st January. Never wanting to be outdone by other London pools, such as our comparitively warm Brockwell, their water was cooled to a decidedly chilly 2°C! But with the sun shining, hot coffee and bacon butties on standby, and a very cosy 80°F sauna, nobody was complaining.

New Indoor Water Polo at Alleyn's School

Brockwell Swimmer’s Water Polo is back for an indoor winter event at Alleyn’s School pool in East Dulwich, just a stone’s throw from our normal home at the Lido. Thankfully the water will be a little warmer!

Like the Summer evenings, this will be open to all abilities with the emphasis on fun rather than competition. Everybody welcome. The one hour session will consist of drills, an introduction to the rules and a short recreational match. Maybe a beer afterwards to catch up and warm up.

Make a Splash for Brockwell

Brockwell Swimmers have again been invited to enter a team for the annual Tooting Lido Heron Invitation Gala happening Sunday 20th March. The race is for all abilities and the distance is only one width. With our honour at stake this is surely a challenge we cannot refuse.
