Sub 10° Club

This year the London Royal Docks are offering you the chance to take on our Sub 10 Challenge; ten Swims in under ten degrees for at least ten minutes.

Whether you are working on your acclimatisation or just looking for an excuse to continue your open water swimming journey through the winter months, we will be open to help you achieve new goals. Stay tuned for information on other participating NOWCA venues, this cold is catching 😉

Swim sessions cost – £8:00 and includes a hot drink (tea/coffee/hot chocolate)

You can now pre-book your swim on on the ACTIO App which saves you time on arrival and means you don’t need to carry cash with you.

It is not compulsory to pre-book – you can of course simply turn up and pay on the day.

Please make sure you register for a NOWCA safety wristband and book/pay for your swim before you arrive with us for the first time. It’s a quick and easy registration via the ACTiO app and costs just £12 a year (in addition to your swim session prices). Please choose ‘London Royal Docks OWS’ as your venue and your NOWCA safety wristband will be available when you arrive on your first swim.
