The pool we use has its own changing cubicles, lockers, showers and toilets, and includes facilities for wheelchair users. Full length blinds protect our privacy from the neighbouring pool for the duration of our swim. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed; in the pool you can swim or chat as much or as little as you like. Numbers vary, but the maximum allowed is 30. Please doRSVP here to indicate your attendance, and ensure you arrive between 6:45pm and 7pm. The last admission time is 7:15pm.
There's an optional visit to the nearby pub The Blue Bell for a pint afterwards. Please note that this pub, by order of its brewery, strictly forbids the use of technology in its premises, and so drinks payment is cash only and mobile phones are banned.
The swim is advertised on other websites and social groups, so don’t worry if there are low numbers attending from this listing. This swim was established in 2006, and is one of the UK’s few remaining male only naturist swim events. Men from not just Manchester, but all over the UK and even around the world have swam with us; and all men are welcome to attend. For any queries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or search @mcrmalenkdswim on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.
