You do not need a licensed time to enter, however a coaches estimated time would help with seeding (or put 00:00.00 instead of a time).

Early bird £6.00 per race entry up to 4th March 2024, £7.00 per race entry standard entry rate to 17th April 2024 then late entry £9.000 if space allows up to the 17th May. Plus £2 admin fee.
A document can be found here setting out how you will need to enter this competition. The format follows previous years but we have also added an older age group to allow older swimmers to compete and get some new times.
This is a first come first served gala so we recommend you get your entries in early. If you wish to track your club's entries please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to do this.

An additional admin fee of £2.00 has been placed on each swimmer entering the gala. This is to contribute to the poolside passes.

In order to ensure we do not over fill the balcony tickets will be sold - unfortunately with a limit of one per swimmer to give everyone an opportunity to see their swimmer swim. There are 90 seats and is a maximum capacity of 140 on the balcony.
Spectator tickets can be purchased here: (coming soon) by the person who made the gala entry - only one ticket per swimmer due to balcony capacity, sorry.
Poolside is going to be very busy - please do not bring big bags poolside - leave them in the lockers (or Group Change for Winsford). Brio often do not allow swimmers to have phones poolside either so be prepared for that.
We only have the pool from pm, access to poolside will be from about pm. Warm ups from pm. Please do not come too early.
Raffle and Cake Stall
We will be holding a raffle and cake stall upstairs by the balcony entrance.
