The last session will be on Friday 4th August 2017 and first session back will be Tuesday 22nd August 2017.
Hope you all have a wonderful summer break
Attached are the full results from the County Secondary Schools Gala held at Thomas Telford Schools on 15th May 2017
Club Championships this year will be swum during July and will include, for the first time, a full day at Central Baths, Wolverhampton. We hope to license the event too which means your swimmer will have al eligible times up on the National Database. This does need a massive amount of poolside support. Timekeepers, judges, referee’s, starter, etc. etc.
We hope to get the electronic timing working too so that your swimmer can hit the finish and see their time up on the big board.
The Club feels that all of our budding Olympic hopefuls right from Penguins up to full squad/polo/club should experience a gala in a mainstream competition venue rather than just race at Wellington or Wrekin.
So, a date for your diaries is Sunday 9th July 2017 where every swimmer in our club will have the opportunity to enter events and race in an 8 lane 25m pool.
There will be 3 sessions with approximate timings and events as below:
Session 1 9am warm up 9.30am start
Session 2 11.15 warm up 11.30 start
Lunch approx. 12.45
Session 3 1.30 warm up 1.45 start
Approximate finish time around 3pm although rest periods and number of actual swimmers will dictate final timings.
Our other events 100IM, 400IM, 200 Free/Back/Breast/Fly, 400 Free, 800 Free & 1500 Free will take place during normal Wrekin sessions. Details of those will be issued nearer the time.
Please make sure you put the 9th in your diary. The day will be Wellington swimmers only with a raffle, music and loads of fun so make sure you support the event. We want EVERY member of the Club there. It’s our first attempt in organising an external meet so please please please come along and bring uncles, aunts, grannies, grandads, sisters, brothers, whoever. The more the merrier. We have enough seating for all your family members (for a change) so entry forms and details will be produced very soon.
Put it in your diary SUNDAY 9TH JULY 2017, CENTRAL BATHS, WOLVERHAMPTON.

Well done to those swimmers who attended the Stourbridge Crystal Open Meet last weekend.
