Club Activities & Events

 

YOU WILL NEVER BE SHORT OF THINGS TO DO!

Our coaching and training activities are described under the Coaching & Training Tab.

Just one reason for joining WTC is to take part in our Summer and Winter Series of member-only races.

These Series are made up of a variety events where you can earn points in a season-long competition. As is true for all our activities, they are suited to the whole spectrum of ability.  Come to race hard or just have some pleasant, gentle exercise.  They are a great way to get to know people.

We have introduced a short series of Ladies-only events aimed at providing a comfortable and welcoming environment, particularly for newcomers.

There are also a number of ad-hoc races / events that take place through the year outside of the main Summer and Ladies series. The dates for these are listed here and (like all the other WTC races / events) cater for all abilities and have a strong social element to them.

All the WTC events are run by the club members for the club members and costs are limited to cover site usage costs (for example payment to Pugneys for open water swimming events). The club gets excellent feedback on the value for money people feel they get from their membership, however this is only possible if the organisation and running of these events is shared across that membership. Volunteers are needed to run many of the events and you can see where volunteers are still needed here, and then put your name forward to help out via our facebook group or the forum.

Social events and formal meetings are arranged from time to time and each year we hold our AGM where we review the year.  All these will be advertised through the Forum, Facebook and Club mails
