Openwarterclubs Oxford, created in 2014, now has over 50 members and a full committee. Its home is Queenford Lake.

We are a vibrant and active club, representing a mix of leisure and competitive open-water swimmers. We do swim during the normal lake opening times, but also organise extra sessions for long-distance swimmers, winter swimmers and social swims in the river. We attend some events as a club, organise swimming and multi-sport weekend trips and non-swimming socials too. And we meet up with other openwaterclubs and swimming groups.

To join, please fill in the membership form and pay online. PLEASE NOTE : MEMBERSHIP IS NOW CLOSED FOR THE SEASON MAY 2018-APRIL 2019
