Please see message from Newham below:

Dear All,

Thank you so much for supporting our inaugural L1 meet at the London Aquatic Centre (LAC). We have had an amazing response and are really pleased to say that we have been to offer all the swims that were entered for without any rejections.

Please find attached the accepted entries for meet. The session timings and further information about the LAC will be issued nearer to the event date.

A couple of things to note:

Change of start time

The start time has changed from 9.45am to 9.10am on both days with warm ups starting at 8am

Notification of errors

I would be grateful if you would notify me of any errors by 1st April as the programme is due to go to print on 4thApril 2018.

Race sponsorship

We are offering swimmers/parents the opportunity to sponsor a race. If you are interested please let me know but remember that this is offered on a first come first serve basis. The cost of sponsoring a race is £10 and it involves a message placed on the title of your chosen race. This is due to close on 1st April 2018


As it’s a level 1 competition, there are strict licensing guidelines that we must adhere to and for this we need officials to make it happen. I urgently need your help to get the required number of officials for each session so please let me have the details of your officials that can help for both days as we need all the help we can get. 

Subject to having sufficient officials on the day we will try to accommodate mentoring at our meets so please do let me know if any of your trainees would like a mentored session.

Once again, thank you to all everyone for their patience and understanding whilst waiting for this email to be published.  If in the meantime you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me on  elopenmeets@gmail.com
