Update - 1st November

The final results are now published. Congratulations to all swimmers for making our return to open meets a great experience and a big thank you to everyone who helped to make it happen. See you all next year! 

Update - 28th October

The final programme is available in the downloads section for you to print at home or to view on your personal device. Please note that we have decided not to provide printed programmes on the day. 

Also, don't forget that the clocks go back on Saturday night, you shouldn't be late if you do forget, but you will be too early!

Update on 20th October:

We have taken the decision to move the start time to an hour later than advertised due to a smaller entry received. Therefore, warm-up will be 9:00 am and the first event 10:00. The afternoon session remains unchanged, 12:45 warm-up, 13:30 start, but we anticipate that it will finish no later than 15:30.

The accepted entries are in the downloads section. Please review and respond back with any errors or omissions by Tuesday 26th October.

We are very short of helpers, particularly officials. Please could anyone who is able to help contact us by Email at

Update on 18th October. We have places available still, so we are extending entries until Friday 22nd October. All entries so far received are accepted.

Update on 1st October: Please note that there was an error on the entry file, omitting the girls 100m. The new entry file (v2) is now in the downloads list.

The format is similar to our previous open meets, with a range of events available to each swimmer over 2 sessions.

Documents and downloads are available in the downloads panel.


Entry forms and electronic entry files are now available. Note that paper entries incur an additional fee per entry, as detailed in the promoter's rules.

For consolidated club entries we ask that you use the electronic entry facility via the SportSystems Entry Manager, use the download links for more information. The SportSystems entry file is also available in the downloads section.
