About Us

Bassetlaw Sports Awards - Club of the year

Welcome to Bassetlaw Tri Club. Our small but active club prides its self on being friendly and accessible. We are currently primarily based in Worksop but are looking at ways to reach into Retford and other areas of Bassetlaw. Amongst our membership are those who represent team GB, those who are complete beginners including none swimmers and everything in between. Members are genuinely supportive of each other regardless of ability, they share tips and encourage each other. Personally, I value their support and friendship and I hope if you join us, you will experience that too.

We have successfully organised two pool swim triathlons, which succeeded in the aim of bringing a new sporting event to the area and encouraged and supported novices to take part along with more seasoned athletes. We are extremely grateful for the support of the council who set up the club in 2012 as part of Olympic Legacy and without whom our event could not take place.

Our growing coaching team headed up by Steve Chambers work hard to cater for all ability levels in the coached training sessions, more about these can be found on the training pages of this website. Along with the coached sessions there often occasions when club members meet up for un-coached runs, or bike rides, these are posted on Facebook for anyone to join.

Whether you have been thinking about triathlon as your next challenge or you have been involved in the sport before and are looking for like minded people to train with, take a look around the website to find out more about what our club has to offer and then come join us. We hope to see you soon.
