57 years ago, South London Swimming Club contacted all the open water swimming clubs in London to ask if they'd like to take part in a gala. Only the Serpentine Swimming Club responded and a tradition was born.
On 17 November South London Swimming Club once again hosted the Serpentine Swimming Club for the annuial Doug Smith Cup.
The sun shone, the water was toasty, the baking passed on expectations and a fantastic day was had by all.
A massive thank you to SLSC for being such terrific hosts
