about us

OW SWIM is the trading name for the swim sessions run by ACTIVITIES AWAY in Lincoln.

Situated to the South of the city centre we are just 10 minutes by car from the A1 at Newark and easily accessible from the city and surrounding areas.

Our lake is an old gravel pit and is fed by rain water and ground water. We have no drains, rivers or ditches discharging into the lake which means our water is very, very clean.

We have it tested every month in the swim season and the results are shared with our customers. We consistently score EXCELLENT when our samples are compared to guidelines set out in the Bathing Water Quality Directive 2006/7/EC

2020 proved to be a year like no other and we were late opening for the summer season for obvious reasons.

We are pleased to say that we still managed to deliver enough capacity to safely manage over 1200 individual swim slots a week at the peak in summer 2020.

We have now programmed 42,000 individual swim slots onto our booking app for summer 2021 - yes, you heard that right... 42,000!

After we had no choice but to cancel our WINTER SWIM CLUB we have brought forward the SUMMER SWIM START to Monday 29th March 2021 at 07.30 am in the morning as a one of special... lets get this summer started!
