Open Water Swimming discontinued at National Diving & Activity Centre for 2017

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

Swimming at NDAC Chepstow

Following a review of the activities on site, we have decided that we won’t be reinstating open water swimming at the National Diving and Activity Centre for the rest of 2017.

During the Winter of 2016 there was some confusion and complaints about our policy to only allow wetsuit diving during the Winter months. This prompted us to begin a full review of Open Water Swimming at the site so that we can tailor it for the needs of our users whilst maintaining a safe environment.

This process is ongoing and our aim is to develop a new set of rules and regulations for open water swimming at the site.

Unfortunately this is taking longer than anticipated and we have made the difficult decision to discontinue open water swimming at the National Diving & Activity Centre for the rest of this year.

We apologise for any inconvenience this delay may cause and would like to take this opportunity to thank our swimming visitors for their support.

When we have any further details they will be released on the NDAC website, Facebook and Twitter.
