During half term, all swimming sessions will continue as normal, including those on Bank Holiday Monday.
Due to the bank holiday, the leisure centre operator has chosen to close the pool early next Monday (7th May). Therefore we will not be able to run any of our sessions next Monday.
Gemini Trophy Gala
Thanks to all the swimmers and parents who attended the Gemini Trophy Gala at Basingstoke on Saturday. Here are the results: Gemini Results.
Rother Junior Trophies
The next team gala is the Rother Junior Trophies. This will be held early evening on Saturday 19th May at Eastleigh (exact time to be confirmed). Please check the team sheet on the noticeboard at the pool – if you’ve been selected please make sure you tick to confirm you can and will attend.
Please note that the pool is closed today (Friday 6th April) due to the leisure centre staff accidentally draining the entire pool last night !
Therefore there will be no swimming sessions tonight.
Thanks to all swimmers, parents, officials and other volunteers who attended last night’s gala. It went really well, with some great swims and lots of personal best times.
Here are the RESULTS.
We’re taking a one week break over Easter.
There will be no sessions from Friday 30th March (Good Friday) to Thursday 5th April inclusive.
All sessions will be back to normal starting from Friday 6th April, so don’t eat too much chocolate !
We’ve had lots of entries for our Race Night gala at Basingstoke this Saturday, and hope everyone is looking forward to it.
The Race Night Gala Programme is now available, so please print your own copy before Saturday if required.
For those taking part, please note the following:
- Please arrive by 6:00pm ready for warm up at 6:10pm.
- Swimmers should bring a drink and a t-shirt to wear between races.
- Swimmers bags should not be taken onto poolside.
- All swimmers and parents must be quiet for the start of every race.
Although we won’t be announcing disqualifications on the night, those who do not complete the event in accordance with the rules will not get their time posted in the results. We strongly recommend that less experienced swimmers (and parents) should take a look at our race guides before Saturday night to better understand what each race involves.
Good luck to everyone…..
Further to previous updates, the pool will not have reached a suitable temperature by this evening, so we have no choice but to cancel all sessions tonight (Monday 5th March).
Please note that unfortunately the pool is closed again today (Sunday 4th March) due to the leisure centre operator running out of gas, so the pool cannot be heated. This is very frustrating but is outside of our control. Therefore there will be no swimming sessions tonight.
We are unclear at this stage whether the pool will be open again for our sessions tomorrow night (Monday 5th March). Since we may be unable to issue updates at short notice, please keep an eye on the leisure centre’s own website for updates tomorrow.
Gemini Gala (3rd March) – Cancelled
Due to the weather conditions we cannot be sure everyone will be able to make it to Basingstoke safely (including the other teams, the officials and the leisure centre staff). Therefore the gala has been cancelled, to be rearranged at a later date.
Club Race Night Gala (24th March) – Entries Still Open
Remember all swimmers can enter our club race night gala which is being held on Saturday 24th March. More information and the entry form can be found here: Gala Info & Entry Form.
You can send entries directly to Anne (email@example.com) or just email her with the swimmer’s name and which strokes & distances they want to enter, with entry fees to be paid afterwards.
We can only run events like this if we get enough entries, so we encourage everyone to enter. The deadline for entries is Monday 12th March.
