Club Night Racing Trial October 29th, all welcome

Swim Club is trialling ‘Official Times’ at our next swim club next Wednesday. Usual time 5.15 start.
This is a first for Abbotsleigh Swim Club so there might be a few teething problems, hence a trial. Given the successes highlighted at our recent awards night, we want as many swimmers there on the night.

We will have officials (starter and referee) and of course we need parent time keepers!

‘On-line’ entries via the club website is available here NOW !

Enter via the ‘Activities’ tab on the drop down menu, click on Club Nights and scroll to the bottom of the page and enter swimmers name – EASY! Please enter by Sunday afternoon, so organisers have time to enter the swimmers into the data base ready for Wednesday evening.


See you there on Wednesday evening.
