Flagship open water venue opening in Nottingham

Nottingham will be home to a new purpose-built open water training venue, opening next month. Based at the National Water Sports Centre, the facility is being run by RG Active and new infrastructure has been built already.

New changing rooms, reception and showroom are currently being installed and will sit alongside a new open water swim store and café. Swimming will take place in a smaller lake alongside the Regatta Lake, which hosts the award-winning Outlaw Triathlon.
