USwim was founded by Dave Quartermain in 2007. As a child Dave had a dream to swim the English Channel and many years later he created one of the very first open water swim venues in the UK, offering safe supervised swimming sessions. Whilst training for his marathon swims such as Windermere and Manhattan Island, he realised there were no facilities to train and Uswim was born.
Over the years Uswim has seen a natural growth and the passion continues. Offering introduction courses for beginners, cold water experiences, training plans and tuition, not to mention events around the North West.
Year on year Uswim welcomes 1000’s of swimmers from a wide variety of abilities and ages, wetsuits or skins. The Uswim community drives our continuing passion to make every experience a positive one.
