Deadline for entries is February 8 and full details, including the downloadable entry form, are available at

Teams of up to 10 swimmers can enter and raise money for their organisation or favourite charity while also supporting Purley Rotary’s charities for 2020, which include Mind in Croydon and the Daniel Spargo-Mabbs Foundation.

Teams swim for a total of 55 minutes, with each team member swimming a length in turn. Over the two Saturdays, more than 40 teams of swimmers aged from eight to 80-plus take part.

For those who can’t raise a team, you can still support Purley Rotary charities via

“Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you at the poolside!” said Swimathon Coordinator Tony Farrell.
