End of year holiday

Saturday 17th December is our Christmas club champs starting at 2:15. There will be no training that day so please come only if you entered the event.

First event is the Christmas jumper parade, please be pool ready but wearing your best Christmas outfit (jumper, hat or something else). Warm up will start just after that.

That will be our last training session of the year, and with the bank holiday on Monday 2nd January we will be reopening on Thursday 5th January 2023.

Membership Renewal help

If any of our members would like to discuss membership renewals, the changes to National plan, how the Swim England membership works or general discussions on training and galas – we will be running for a couple of membership workshops at club sessions through the remaining training sessions this year.

Please come along to the cafe area at 3:45 to 4:15 Saturday 10 December if you have any questions.


All entries for the BOBSC Gala have been accepted for Saturday 10th December at Ponds Forge.


Spectators will be seated on the right hand side of the balcony (Omega Suite side) and will not be permitted into the swimmer seating area.  

Spectator tickets are being sold online rather than on the door, and can be purchased via the link below. 


Christmas Club Champs

If you forgot to put your entries in for the Christmas Club Champs, I will accept entries up to Monday 5th December at the latest.

We would like all swimmers to enter, parents swimming and christmas jumper activities are optional.

This is a good chance to come and have some fun.

The Club Champs will start at 2:15 on Saturday 17th December – there will be no training that day – and its the last Saturday session of the year.
