Kingfisher is a friendly triathlon club based in Kingston-upon-Thames in South West London. The best way to check us out is to come along to a session The Membership Secretary or one of the club coaches will be available to answer any questions you may have about the club, training or your plans. If you would like to come along please email membership to let us know you are coming so we can look out for you.
The club has a wide ranging membership of all abilities from complete newcomers to the sport, right through to GB representatives and Ironman athletes. We welcome new members whatever their sporting background or future goals, whether it's your first triathlon or 10th Ironman we have like-minded and friendly people to train with.
We have a number of qualified coaches and run weekly club training sessions – 2 x coached swimming on Monday in Kingston and Wednesday at Hampton Pool, 1 x cycling session on Thursdays (Richmond Park ride in Summer & Virtual Stage bikes at Kingfisher Leisure Centre from Oct to May), 1 x coached run on Tuesday evenings at Kingsmeadow Track, and Club cycling ride on Sunday from Hampton Court. There is also open water swimming on Saturdays which varies with the time of the year - see the Swim Bike Run sessions for more details.
As well as training we also hold a club championship. This is a series of races we promote during the summer season which we encourage members to do, and from which we select our club champions. We also have an active social section that arranges monthly club socials, weekends away and even holidays.
