Programme and Conditions

Entry to this meet is on a first come, first served basis and we filled up quickly last year.

Electronic Entry 

As some may be aware we are running the gala through a new exciting system which has been developed by two members of Satellites Swimming Club. The system drastically cuts down the time needed to enter competitions and run them, saving volunteers masses of time! We believe it really helps bring swimming into the 21st century! Any rejections will be refunded back to card payment method and no clubs will have to handle cash.

Entries are made by individuals, NOT clubs. Whilst you can enter with No Time if you genuinely don't have one, if you do have them please use them or your swimmers will be in the wrong heats.


The website for the entry is https://swimming.events/meets/54. All information is here and gives you the days left until our closing date. It should be noted that the sign up process is a one off and for future galas will not need to be done.

If you have any questions about the entry process please contact contact@swimming.events and they will get back to you to respond to any queries. Any technical issues will be best solved with a screenshot of the issue and a full description of how you got there. We are told this is the best way for them to solve issue. They may be available for demonstrations to clubs, however this is dependent on their time over the next few weeks. If this is requested we suggest this is done sooner rather than later. However they will be posting videos up in the next few days and also be putting more detailed information on the website. We found it fairly intuitive to use. Any constructive feedback on the site can be passed directly to the guys at Swimming Events or to us and we can use it to help make the system even better for future users and clubs who wish to give it a go!

An additional admin fee of 50p has been placed on each swimmer entering the gala. This is to contribute to the poolside passes. These will be allocated in the ratio of 1 pass per 10 swimmers. Additional passes can be purchased for £5 each. Individuals and clubs with less than 10 swimmers will still be entitled to 1 poolside pass.

For all other queries and advance withdrawals (appreciated) please contact wingalateam@gmail.com. Self withdrawal up to 23:59 on 6th Dec using the 'my events' section of swimming events. Final withdrawals by 8.30am on the morning of the gala please.
