Otter Quarter Mile

  • Parliament Hill Lido Heath Lodge, Highgate London, NW5 1NA (map)

The annual Quarter-Mile open water swim, social water polo match and social event will be held at the Parliament Hill Lido on Saturday 11 August, starting 6.30pm.
The swim is handicapped (staggered) start, the start order and times determined by Dave Warren (so swim slowly in the mile and half mile if you want an advantage!). After the swim there will be a social, mixed water polo match - this will all be just for fun so don't worry if you haven't played before!
The swim will be followed by a buffet dinner and drinks (food provided, drinks not) at The Vine pub, 5 mins walk from the lido.

It's always a social evening and open to all club members, water polo and swimmers. Guests are welcome, to swim or just for the pub.

The cost for the evening is £22 to be paid in advance to the club account (or £10 swim only, £12 dinner only).
To sign up please contact me by Sunday 29 July at stating names, swimming (or not), food allergies or preferences, and confirm payment to the club account.
