Club Championships this weekend! Friday and Saturday will see one of the most exciting events of the Clubs year!

Some points to remember….

1. Warm up is 5pm on Friday and 2pm on Saturday. Swimmers should be poolside ready to swim by then.
2. Swimmers must not use the Dry changing rooms
3. Snacks must not contain Nuts!
4. Due to the set up of the Championships this year Results will not be posted around pool until after all swimmers have swam an Event. This means they will not be posted as regularly as previous years when we posted after age group event finished.
