The Lido is going to be completely shut from 12pm on Monday 11th June through to 5pm on Wednesday 13th June 2018 whilst they put in a larger capacity water tank to prevent the current issues of low water pressure during peak times.
Therefore Pilates is moving just down the road to the Brixton Community Base - Talma Road, Brixton, SW2 1AS - …Continue
Hi all, as well as continuing to support existing members and improve the quality of our coaching and member support, our key objectives for 2018, as set out in the committee's annual strategy, are around:
This week is the final week of strength and conditioning at the Castle, but that’s because it’s moving to its summer home of Brockwell Park from next Wednesday. Over the summer it’s body weight based so that it won’t get in the way of any races you have coming up (and so coaches don’t have to lug weights up to the top of the hill!) and is a perfect way to keep your body balanced and stable and hopefully prevent injury.
Sessions will be 7am on Wednesdays…Continue

I just wanted to formally welcome and thank our new assistant head coach, Emily Robinson, who many of you already know as one of our amazing swim coaches, and soon to be fully qualified level 2 Tri coach.
Emily stepped in to offer her help when I was on the brink of stepping down because there was too much to do, so you can either thank her or curse her for convincing me to stay on! Either way I am immensely grateful so if you see her around, please do thank her (or buy her a…Continue
Please find below the new summer training timetable. Anticipating some of the likely feedback:
- sorry that velo is only fortnightly, this is the only booking we are able to get over the summer.
- sorry that there are multiple sessions on some days, there's not enough days of the week to get all the sessions we would like! Plus it's dependent on venue and coach availability.
- Please note that spin will cost 7 tokens from May in recognition that it is a…Continue
From June S&C sessions will be moving outdoors, yey!
They will be mostly body weight and mobility based exercises which will be great for keeping you injury free but not heavy enough to get in the way of your summer training.
If you’re interested in taking part please fill in the attached vote so we can choose which session goes ahead. The options are based on coaches availability. Brockwell sessions will be in the park, most likely up in the middle and should give you…Continue
