There’s no better feeling that swimming in the great outdoors, so come and try one of the fastest growing sports in the UK. Whether you’re training for a triathlon, want to improve your technique, or just experience open water swimming, we’ll help you achieve your goals.
Please note: our open water season ended in October 2019. Open water swimming sessions will return in April 2020!
We have partnered with Swimming Matters who deliver our coaching programme. Swimming Matters are a professional team of fully qualified Swim England and British Triathlon Open Water coaches.
They provide a structured pathway of sessions including one-to-one sessions, an introduction to open water, front crawl and open water skills to the Swim Smooth Manchester Open Water Squad. These sessions cater for a range of abilities and experience from those new to open water to seasoned open water swimmers and triathletes.
For more information please visit the Helly Hansen Watersports Centre website.
We stock a wide range of open water swim accessories including goggles, noseclips and earplugs. These can be purchased from reception when you come to swim or anytime the centre is open. Alternatively, you can purchase them over the phone and pick them up when you visit.
You can hire wetsuits on a ‘per session’ basis. We also provide weekend and season hire. We have limited supply, so please make sure you call and book to pay for your wetsuit before your session.
Please visit the Helly Hansen Watersports Centre website for details on prices.
