Thames Turbo Triathlon Club

Based in Hampton, Middlesex, Thames Turbo is an inclusive and dynamic triathlon club providing superb swimming, cycling and running coaching to all members in unique training facilities.

Our Club

Our Ethos

Swim. Bike. Run. Fun! As a club catering for all levels of ability we believe in training hard, being sociable and enjoying all we do. This is a club run by members for members. We are proud to belong to such a prestigious club and love to wear our club colours. We take our governance responsibilities seriously. This is reflected in us having achieved our BTF Tri Mark Award.


Our training strategy is led by our Head Coach – Ralph Hydes. Ralph and all our talented coaches are BTF qualified at Level 1, 2 or 3, or equivalent. All coaches hold valid DBS checks.

Our members have the opportunity to attend sessions in swimming, cycling and running each week helping them to go from strength to strength.


Expect to be welcomed at your first training session. We are renowned for being a friendly bunch and we genuinely enjoy getting to know each other and spending time together beyond training sessions. We host regular social evenings and these are a great way to meet other people. Our social Sunday rides usually involve a coffee and cake stop – this is why we do tri, right?

Senior Membership

Our full senior membership allows access all the sessions and classes we offer. There are no top up fees and no hidden costs. With all swimming sessions, cycling and running coaching included we know that what we offer is amazing value. Exclusive pool access means we have the ability to offer appropriate swim coaching to all our members. The only requirement to join is that you can competently swim 100m.

Junior Membership

We believe in supporting our 7-16 year old juniors of all abilities to do their best and be their best selves. Summer and winter intraclub leagues are a great way to develop the confidence to race in a safe and supported environment. All training sessions are coached and comply fully with safeguarding and health and safety guidelines. Our junior membership fee provides outstanding value.

I joined TTTC in 2017 to train with like-minded individuals. I regularly attend coached swimming and cycle sessions which have helped me to become a stronger athlete resulting in achieving my personal goals with the extra benefits of making friends, supporting and sharing our journeys together.

Teresa Willcox

Having already qualified for the GB Age Group team, I joined Turbos to ensure I did myself justice and make my family proud. The encouragement and friendly competition within the club has really helped spur me on. Knowing our supportive coaches have designed programs to ensure we succeed, all I needed to do was turn up, put the effort in and have fun. To end up medalling in the national championships and pushing for a Top 10 spot in the Worlds exceeded anything that I would have believed possible.

I have been a member of Thames Turbo for 10 years now. When I joined I was a relative beginner and wanted a club to help me improve and the coaching set up and willingness of the members to share knowledge has helped me to become a regular GB Age Group athlete and also make many friends over the years.
