Club Turnball gala 8th OctoberPublished 20th September 2017

The club is holding its annual Turnbull Gala on Sunday 8th October at Westcroft Leisure Centre from 3.30 to 5.30pm.

This is one of 2 club galas held during the year and is aimed at our newer and younger swimmers, although swimmers of any age are welcome to enter. Swimmer must be able to swim 1 length in the stroke(s) they are entering.

Please note that the gala is only open to swimmers who did not win an event in either last year's club championships or Turnbull gala (please see the list of swimmers who are not allowed to enter below).

This provides the opportunity for other swimmers to compete for medals, awarded to the 1st 3 in each event.

There are 1 length races in all strokes for each age group. Swimmers can enter a maximum of 2 races. Entry is free, but there will be a small charge for spectators on the day.

If you wish to submit an entry, please print the attached entry form and complete with the swimmers name, dob and choice of races.

Please hand this in at the desk no later than Friday 5th October. If you are not able to print the entry form we will accept entries by email.

Running these galas very much depends on parent volunteers, so any help would be much appreciated. If any parents or older swimmers can assist at the gala please email or
