At the Cambridge Swimming Company, we are passionate about the open water environment and the many ways in it can be enjoyed. The sense of freedom and peace that open water / wild swimming provides, together with the mental and physical health benefits, drive us to share our passion for the sport.
The community of open water swimmers is as varied as the general population. This inspiring, adventurous and inclusive group of people, come together through swimming, art, food and a love of nature. We champion all aspects of this community and our mission is to support all swimmers, however they choose to enjoy the open water.
The physical and mental health benefits of getting out in nature are essential to our wellbeing. We champion every person that takes to the great outdoors, from the Channel swimmers to the first timers, dipping their toes in a river.
Our coaching philosophy is that we are athlete led. No two swimmers are alike, and neither are their abilities or their goals. We work with first time open water swimmers through to those training for a channel crossing attempt. Single sessions, group sessions or just some online advice are available so please get in touch.
For some, the idea of swimming in the wild is a scary prospect. We want everyone to be able to overcome any barrier that is preventing them from enjoying the open water. If you have a desire, we work with you to achieve your goals in the water. That can be anything from your first dip of a toe through to marathon swimming. We believe the water is for everyone.
