At the Tri2O Swim Centre we pride ourselves on our friendly 'club atmosphere' and welcome Triathletes and Open Water Swimmers of all abilities. Whether you're an absolute novice looking to take on your first open water swim or a seasoned English Channel swimmer, the experienced team look forward to welcoming you to our fantastic lake. Now in our 6th season running the Swim Centre, we still love helping our customers smash their goals...for some that is simply getting in to the lake and completing that lap (you know who you are . . . ), whilst for others that may be a sub 10 hour Ironman!
The on-site Tri2O Shop and Wetsuit Fitting Center carries a comprehensive range of Wetsuits, Tri-suits, Swimming Goggles and accessories from blueseventy, Orca & Aqua Sphere; and a range of Nutrition products.
We offer a complimentary wetsuit fitting service and what sets us apart is that we fundamentally believe any swimmer purchasing a new wetsuit should at least try it on and preferably swim in it before they buy, so that's what we offer. Our expert team will ensure you select the right wetsuit for your requirements, help you to put it on correctly and then you get the opportunity to swim in it to make sure it feels good.
The lake water temperature is measured and updated daily on our Home Page at www.mysportingtimes.com. Why not set us up as one of your 'favourites' and have a quick glance before you head over for a swim....then you can decide if you need those booties or not! You can also get regular updates by following us on Twitter or Facebook.
The Tri2O Swim Centre is accredited as a NOWCA approved lake.
We offer scheduled on-site triathlon and open water swimming coaching, in line with the NOWCA and BTF guidelines, with our resident Coaches Clive Alderson and Dom Dos Remedios. Coaching sessions are available to book as 1:1 or Group sessions, through our dedicated Lake Coaching section.
For those requiring something less structured there will always be an experienced open water swimmer on hand to offer advice, guidance and reassurance.
The lake is situated at the Reading Lake Hotel [formerly the Copthorne Hotel] off Junction 11 on M4.
