Hey everyone,

Any recommendations for a swimming squad in London for a solo EC aspirant? I'm moving near Elephant & Castle in Feb and I'll be working near St Paul's if that helps. Mornings work best for me but I could try to make evening sessions work too.

Thanks in advance!

    There's only one place you need to be in London as an EC aspirant!!!

    The SERPENTINE!!!!

    10 successful solos from 9 swimmers last year!

    You'd be more than welcome. Just drop me a line.

    Big love
  • @jmc I suggest that you look into swimming with Otter SC (many London workout venues, mostly evening as far as I know) for traditional swim squad training. For outdoor swimming/cold water training, the Serpentine has been mentioned, but you could also look into Brockwell Lido and Tooting Bec Lido and Royal London Docks which are open at times of day when the Serpentine club is not operating. You are probably already aware of the groups who train in Dover during the summer? Dover Channel Training, King's Swimmers and so on?
