Swim Session Pay & Book

From 14/08/2020 at 20:00 we will not accept any checks, changes or cancellations of single or swim pass swims. We have been willing to make these without charge, but the reasons for checks “I haven’t received the auto email”, or changes e.g.”the BBC predict the sun isn’t going to shine much today”, or “rain is forecast” when the swimmers will get wet anyway, and the volume of personal changes, have increased to the point that the cost of the changes has become significantly greater than the price of the swim.

So if you don’t attend, you will forfeit your single swim or that swim pass swim.

When you purchased your single swim or swim pass this did not include free changes, but we have accepted & made checks, changes & cancellations with good will. However, moving forward, any swim pass holders who are not willing to accept this “no free checks, changes or cancellations” policy, and have swims left on their pass, can email pauline@divein.co.uk for a refund on remaining unused swims. Future swim passes will be subject to the “no free checks, changes or cancellations” policy.

Sorry, but we have to protect the swimming for the majority of our 9000 registered swimmers.

 

From 06/08/2020 we will not give any advice on our website or booking form if you call us while viewing the website on a mobile phone or Ipad. Ensure you have the website loaded on a PC or laptop with a restored screen (circular arrow, top left) before you call us.

TOP 12 TIPS & COVID-AWARE GUIDELINES
FOR MY VISIT TO DOSTHILL QUARRY

  1. ARRIVE SWIM DRIVE. During Covid-19 Dosthill Quarry is open for 1 hour swim sessions on the form below the chart, or 2 hours if you have swum in open water for at least 10 hours in the past 4 weeks, including at least 2 X 1-hour swims, and your body is acclimatised to current water temperatures. You are strongly recommended to wear a full wetsuit until the water temperature rises to 22 degrees. If you don’t have your own wetsuit, rental details are at Tip#2 below. Please adhere to our ARRIVE SWIM DRIVE policy and don’t be tempted to socialise until the Government’s Covid restrictions permit it. Thank you.

    FREE REGISTRATION. All swimmers have to be registered for swimming at Dosthill Quarry. Recent or older registrations are still valid, but if you are not sure, your details have changed, or you are not registered, please register now at https://dosthillquarry.com/swimreg/ before completing the booking form below. There is no facility at Dosthill Quarry for registering on site.

  2. RENTAL ARRANGEMENTS. Rental prices are Full Wetsuit £8 & Personal Float £2, payable by contactless card at reception on arrival. Shorties are available at £6, but only for swimmers who have acclimatised to the current water temperature. If you need to rent a float or wetsuit, enter the height & chest/dress size of the person who needs the suit, or enter Float, in the optional rental field on the booking form below. If no rental is needed leave the field blank. If you don’t receive a call or email within 2 hours to confirm the rental, call Joe on 01827 281304 to check.

  3. STAY UPDATED. Check this website’s home page at https://dosthillquarry.com/, and this Swim Bookings page before every visit to stay updated with current fast-changing conditions, special arrangements, and last-minute swim availability.

  4. COVID SYMPTOMS. Stay at home if you, or someone you live with, have any of the following symptoms. A high temperature means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back. You do not need to measure your temperature. A new, continuous cough means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours. If you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual. Loss or change to your sense of smell or taste means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal.

  5. BEFORE & DURING BOOKING. Click the link below to watch our Covid Swim Video Briefing, before you arrive. It saves you valuable swim time by not having to attend an on-site briefing which we are phasing out.

    Refresh or restore this page just before you check the Currently Available Swim Places chart below Tip#12.  Pay by PayPal or card at the link below the chart for a single swim session. Copy the PayPal Transaction ID, and then complete the swim booking form.

  6. COMPLETING THE BOOKING FORM. The swim booking form is located a few paragraphs under the Currently Available Swim Places chart, and is easily identified by the word Required at the start of most fields. The form only takes about 25 seconds to complete.

  7. COMPLETION CARE. Take extra care when completing the following fields:-
    Payment Amount. Enter £4 for a single under 15 or dog swim, & £8 for a single adult swim.
    Receipt Code. Copy & paste the PayPal Transaction ID.
    Date of Birth. Only for swimmers under 15.
    Visit Date. Enter the visit date only in the format DD/MM/2020.
    Start & End Times. Remember to complete these or the form will not send.
    Email. TAKE EXTRA CARE to enter and check your correct email address or you won’t receive the auto reply confirmation email. More than 50% of our swimmers incorrectly type, mistype, or don’t check what they’ve typed e.g hitmail.com instead of hotmail.com & .con instead of .com.
    Participant Agreement at the bottom of the form. Everyone over 18 needs to tick this agreement box. A parent or guardian of an under 18 swimmer must also state the name of that parent before ticking the box. This robust Covid-Secure policy provides us, and the authorities, with essential “track & trace” information in the event of a Covid-19 outbreak among our swimmers.

  8. HAND PROTECTION. Bring disposable gloves with you, or swim gloves, to protect you from Covid-19 infection from our communal surfaces e.g. portaloo toilets and handrails. Don your gloves before you touch the entry handrail or any other communal surfaces. Ensure you don’t touch your face with gloved hands after contact with communal surfaces.

  9. CAR SHARING & SATNAV POSTCODE. Car share ONLY with swimmers in your household. Do not bring spectators, or invite them to come separately. Best SatNav postcode is B77 1LU, Church Road. Drive past the church on your left, and turn left through our green gates.

  10. CHANGING. Our changing rooms are not allowed to open during Covid, so ensure you park at least 2 metres away from the nearest car, so you can maintain social distancing between your car boot and the boot of adjacent cars in the car park, while you kit-up & de-kit from the boot of your car. Bring a towel robe or dressing gown with you to ensure your personal privacy while changing adjacent to the church graveyard before and after your swim. We don’t want you to frighten the residents or upset their visiting relatives! But don’t feel embarrassed. Wearing a dressing gown before & after swimming is now the latest fashion at our lake!!

  11. SOCIAL DISTANCING. The track from the car park to the lake, and the area around the entry points must be kept clear at all times. Maintain a physical distance of 2 metres or more between yourself, our staff & other non-household swimmers, at the surface, as well as on land. Waving to friends meets this recommendation, whereas handshakes, hugs or elbow bumps don’t. Adopt the rule of the road and pass others on the left while onsite.

  12. COOPERATION. Implement all guidelines of these Top 12 Tips during kit-up, the swim, de-kit and while out of the water. Site staff reserve the right to monitor this, impose social distancing of swimmers, or ask you to leave the site.
