HOWSC is a thriving club with an ever increasing membership keen to share the wonderful experience of swimming in the outdoors with as many people as possible.  The club is made up of swimmers from all walks of life whose abilities vary from those who want to swim heads up breastroke whilst chatting to their companion, to serious long distance swimmers who compete in events at some of the highest levels.   Everyone is keen to share their knowledge of the sport and support one another ensuring that everyone gets the most out of the experience.

Membership of the Henley Open Swimming Club costs 20 per year and includes the ability to swim at Queensford Lake for 3 per session during the winter months. .

Membership benefits include an exclusive club swimming cap, discounted club mechandise, achievement badges, the lake discounts and a range of discounts on Selkie swimwear and Henley Swim events such as the internationally famed Classic and Thames  Marathon (see events page for more details).

Membership runs from April to March.
