The South London Swimming Club (SLSC) is a members’ club whose home is Tooting Bec Lido. We are one of England’s oldest swimming clubs, founded in 1906, and have been holding our races at Tooting Bec Lido since 1908. We are a very sociable and inclusive club with members from birth to 90 and every kind of swimmer from those wanting a leisurely meander through to long distance swimmers training for the Channel.

Tooting Bec Lido is the largest fresh water pool in England, encircled by trees and birdsong. It is 100 yards long and 33 yards wide and contains one million gallons of water. The water is clear and cold and the welcome warm. We swim outdoors all year round and encourage people to share in these pleasures.
