Beckenham Swimming Club are pleased to announce their

125th Anniversary

Easter Open Meet 2018

Friday 30th March 2018 - Sunday 1st April 2018
London Aquatics Centre (LAC)
Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Stratford, London. 

The London Aquatic Centre

The venue is one of the best swimming venues in the world and we hope provides inspiration for all those competing.

Entry for swimmers, spectators and coaches will be as follows:

  • Friday 30th March from 4pm
  • Saturday 31st March from 7.15am
  • Sunday 1st April from 7.15am

Please ensure you don't arrive early as the security team will restrict entry before these times.

All access to the building for officials, spectators, swimmers and coaches is through the event doors upstairs.  Officials must be carrying their ASA cards at all times.  Coaches must wear their Poolside Passes at all times.

The venue has an exclusive catering contract with its caterers and will not allow spectators to bring their own food/drink. Spectators may be bag searched and asked to dispose of any food/drink. This is not ideal, but is outside of our control - please ensure your swimmers and spectators are aware of this.

We have agreed with the operators that swimmers can bring their own food. They should take any food through with them. Spectators will not be able to give them food during the event unless purchased on site.

Car parking at the LAC is limited. There are eleven (11) blue badge parking spots and these are on a first come first served basis.  

Officials, Spectators, Swimmers and Coaches should park in Westfield Centre, Stratford. The best car park is car park B.  It should take about ten minutes to walk to the Aquatics centre.

For those of you not familiar with the LAC, it is right next door to the London Stadium where West Ham FC plays its home matches.  There will be a fixture on Saturday 31st March at 3pm.  This usually means a lot of congestion in the area building up to and after the game so please be aware.

Coach Packs / Poolside Passes

These will be available to pick up on entering the LAC upstairs.

Sign In

All events for this gala are SIGN IN.  Sign in will take place on poolside.  

The sign in sheets will reflect the programme so please make sure your swimmers are roughly aware of their position for each event in advance to help speed up the process.  This will be very busy for Sessions 2 & 5. Please impress upon your swimmers that they must sign in with their name and not sign in on behalf of anyone else.
