The sun rising so early and setting so late can mean only one thing for everyone at Hathersage Swimming Pool, our 5th Annual Mid Summer Swim is upon us. At 3:00am on Saturday 24th June the lifeguards will be opening the doors of the pool to begin our 24 hour opening. As usual so much will be happening between the sun rises. We’ll have swimmers completing 24 miles in 24 hours. From 19:30pm- 21:30pm on Saturday 24th there will be our very popular Night Swim to live music, with two more ticketed sessions following! There will be our annual challenge of how far we can swim, this is where we record all the lengths each and every one of you does throughout the opening, let’s see where we end up this year, somewhere sunny please!

We have lots of people doing sponsored miles and this year, we will be supporting many swimmers who are swimming their miles to support Ghazala Ahmad-Mear. Ghazala is one of our season ticket holders and in January 2018 she will be taking on a very challenging expedition through the South Pole. Ghazala will be the only UK female in a team of 8 to be undergoing the challenge of walking 60 miles through the South Pole, wait, there’s more… Her team will be fuelling their walk on solely renewable energy, using only sun, wind and biofuels, they will be using NASA technology. The expedition will be the first of its kind, reminding you that ‘Step by Step… Everyone can make a difference!’ Ghazala has said she wants it to be ‘in celebration of Hathersage Pool’, contributing to the  ‘Renewable Revolution with the new Photovoltaic Panels. If we raise £5k, I pledge to take the beautiful Hathersage Swimming Pool Flag to the South Pole with me to photograph and return!’ So Good luck to Ghazala and everyone helping her, we’re all behind you!
The pool will stay open through the night of Saturday 24th and close at 3:00am on Sunday 25th so come and swim in the illuminated water at witching hour, it’s truly magical!
