Lisa Kemp is the Founder of Big Love Swim Club and your Coach.

about page banner Swimming has been a big part of Lisa’s life for over 40 years.

Following years of pool swimming, Lisa discovered the joy of open water swimming. When she’s not swimming in the Queens Dock, Liverpool, she is likely to be found in the open sea or in a lake, river or mountain dipping pool in the heart of Wales or the Lake District. Lisa has competed in numerous triathlons and swimming events including the Liverpool Triathlon, West Lancs Spring Triathlon, The Great Welsh Swim, The Great North Swim and countless charity swim events.

Two years ago Lisa took a giant leap of faith and following a lengthy and successful career in law, decided to focus on her passion for swimming. She developed Big Love Swim Club as a much-needed platform to deliver safe, supportive and non-competitive swim coaching sessions for women.

What our swimmers are saying

heart with quote
Alison Webb

Lisa explained how to drop my head further into the water to stop my legs from sinking. This made such a huge difference to my front crawl technique. Lisa has a very reassuring manner and now every time I swim I can hear her advice!

Angela Connor

Lisa taught me how to slow down and pace myself so I can achieve a consistent pace during a long-distance swim event. Lisa makes you feel at ease and clearly knows her swimming stuff!

Cathy Hughes

Whilst watching me swim, Lisa quickly spotted flaws in my front crawl arm action and explained how to correct them. I would highly recommend Lisa to anyone who wants to improve their technique, build their confidence or conquer fears!

Lisa is an amazing swim coach. My friends and I decided to try OW swimming and had no idea where to start. We contacted Lisa and had an intro session with her and loved it. Lisa is really welcoming, knowledgeable and reassuring. She gave us lots of advice and ensured we all felt safe in the water. After one session we are hooked!
