EDSC Super Sunday Sprint Meet (L3) - FINAL ARRANGEMENTS

22 Sep 2019
July, 19 2019





To: Swimmers, Coaches  and Team Managers.

Many thanks for your entries. We have a great Meet planned and look forward to welcoming you to Crook Log in just under 2 weeks time. Please find attached the final confirmed entries by Club and then by swimmer. Swimmers should check their entries and advise me of any errors in advance of the day. Mistakes are much easier to fix in advance.

The timings for the Meet have not altered and are now confirmed as follows:

Session 1.

Sign in opens at 7.45am, closes at 8.30am.

Warm up 8.30am to 9.30am – split into 4 x 15 minute sessions.

Session starts at 9.35am and finishes at 12.35pm.

Session 2.

Sign in opens at 12.15pm, closes at 1.00pm

Warm Up 1.00pm to 2.00pm – split into 4 x 15 minute sessions.

Session starts at 2.05pm and finishes at 4.50pm


There is ample free parking available at Crook Log and the Cafeteria will be open all day serving hot and cold food and drinks. The balcony at Crook Log is large and there will be plenty of seating available for spectators. We have a large number of swimmers taking part so the balcony will be busy and I ask that spectators do not reserve seats. The spectator entry fee is £4.00 per session or £6.00 for the day and this includes your Meet Programme.

Coach passes / packs will be available for collection on the day from the signing in tables. Please ask your Coaches to collect them from there. They are also welcome to come to the Officials room throughout the day for hot and cold drinks, breakfast and lunch.

Hire conditions at Crook Log dictate that large bags are not taken on to poolside. Swimmers should leave their large bags in the lockers provided and just bring a small bag containing their essential kit on to poolside. The lockers take a £1 coin and this is refunded each time you open the locker.

As always, we would appreciate offers of help from your Club Officials. If you have qualified Officials who would be able to assist at either one or both sessions then please ask them to e-mail me and let me know. 

In a bid to keep things moving as quickly as possible, we will be adopting a slightly different approach in Backstroke events throughout the day. We will not be asking swimmers to clear the pool at the end of each race, instead we will ask the swimmers to hold the lane rope and stay in the corner of the lane whilst we get the next set of swimmers in and started. Once the race has started they should exit the pool by the side in the usual manner. Please ensure that swimmers are aware of this subtle change.

I do hope that I haven’t missed anything. If you do have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me by e-mail: john@edsc.org.uk

Again and as always, thanks for your support and I look forward to seeing you all at the Meet.

Best Wishes,

John Burdett.

Conditions, Schedule & Qualifying Times

Entry Form for Beckenham SC Swimmers -   MS Word /   PDF


This is a licensed Level 3 Gala with Upper Qualifying Times - so 2 things to note:

  1. If your swimmer is faster than a qualifying time, you can only enter them as a Time Trial which prevents them from being placed or receiving medals
  2. If your swimmer does not have a time for a specific event you can enter (just put NT where the entry time should be).  


Please read the conditions carefully before entering your child, making sure you are entering events that are open to them & if needs be speak with your coach.  Note this is an 'age on day' gala for swimmers aged 9 & over on 22 September 2019.

This gala is 'first come first served' hence we would like to get our entries in before the end of the season.  If you'd like your swimmer to compete in this gala, the deadline for submitting both your entry form and payment to me is Friday 19th July 2019; please don’t leave it until the last minute!  Failure to make payment (at the latest) by the closing date, will see your swimmer removed and they will not be entered to swim.

Entries & payment details should be submitted either via:
•    email to lindseydavison@btinternet.com or 
•    post to Lindsey Davison, 43 Oakwood Avenue, Beckenham, BR3 6PT.

  • In addition, please remember to include the £4 admin fee per swimmer / per gala (this is included on the entry form) as detailed in the AGM papers sent out on 20 June 2019.

I look forward to receiving your entries.
