We're pleased to announce an exclusive partnership with TriSwim, a start-up company based across three lake venues in Kent run by Laura Ansell. TriSwim is dedicated to the promotion of open water swimming for all ages. 

We will be the exclusive provider of wetsuits and accessories at the three open water venues in the South East of England.  Swimmers will have the opportunity to try out wetsuits and gain expert fitting and advice. TriSwim will also carry a selected range of gear available for purchase exclusively at the venues and through the TriSwim events programme this summer. 

Kent and the South East region boasts an impressive selection of open-water venues, and TriSwim has already secured exclusive rights for open water training in the following 3 locations:

  • Hever Castle (Hever, Kent): an impressive 3.2k and 1.5k swimming loop, a perfect training location for seasoned triathletes;
  • Honnington Farm, Soutborough (Turnbridge Wells): an intimate privately owned lake, ideal for first-timers, juniors and for shorter distance swims;
  • Haysden Lake (Tonbridge, Kent): shared location with a boating club, with a 1000m loop and 5km trail run, already partnered with 7Oaks Triathlon club for weekly swim sessions.

TriSwim is set to host a launch event on Saturday 30 April at Honnington Farm, but will open sooner, with the first swimming opportunities from 3 April.

Ansell, a former GB junior international swimmer and a co-host of the successful Twitter feed, @UKSwimChat, said: “Our coaching team is in place and the partnership with blueseventy was one of the final pieces of the jigsaw to get us ready for the season ahead.” Learn more about TriSwim at
