Open Water Swim – Bare it for the Bard

Shakespeare Hospice – Open Waters Swim

Date: Sunday 7th August 2022

Venue: Spot-On Wake, Wootton Park, Wootton Wawen, B95 6HJ

On Sunday 7th August we’ll be returning to Spot-On Wake for our Bare it for the Bard Open Water Swim Challenge in memory of Sharne Phipps.

 

This year’s event will be bigger and better with 2 swims to choose from:

• Challenge Swim (10 starts) – swim as many loops as you can in 1 hour!

• 1-hour Freestyle Swim (11.15 am or 12.30 pm start)

Fun family activities

There will be activities on the day to keep the whole family entertained including the one-of-a-kind Aqua Jungle (ages 8+ ) and demonstrations from some of Spot-On Wake’s seasoned wakeboarders.  

Register today 

It costs £10 per person to take part and we ask that you raise a minimum of £30 in sponsorship for the Hospice. Once you’ve registered you’ll receive a link to your personal fundraising page which you can share with family and friends. All swimmers will receive a branded Shakespeare Hospice swim hat and will take home a medal and certificate on the day.

Please note: to take part in this event, it is a requirement of Spot-On Wake that you sign a waiver before you can enter the water. A link to the waiver will be provided once you have registered your place.

WHAT WILL YOU NEED?

  • You must wear a brightly coloured swim hat – we recommend using our branded hat free with your registration (swim hats are available to purchase from the office at Spot-On Wake)
  • The use of a wetsuit is optional but recommended (wetsuits are not available to hire at Spot-On Wake)

AGE RESTRICTIONS

  • Participants must be 14 years or over on the date of the event and should be strong and competent swimmers.
  • Anyone under the age of 18 MUST have a signed consent form from a parent/guardian.

Lifeguards will be in attendance and on duty at all times during the event.

We would like to say a huge thank you to our hosts Spot-On Wake for the use of their stunning facilities. Without them, we could not provide this fantastic event!
