Our swimmers will be busy racing in a total of over 200 individual events between them over the day. Special mentions go to twelve of our young Junior Swimmers who will be competing in their first Open Gala, and for some its also their first ever competition! You have to start somewhere and there’s no better place to begin than with your swimming friends at a nice nearby venue.?? Some of our newest and youngest competitors to this gala arent even 9 yet, so we have lots of our Club Coaches & older swimmers who will be taking extra special care of them all. Enjoy yourselves swimmers & parents/carers, and have a great time. Swimmers bring back lots of new PBs, and a few medals would be very nice too!
