Rising Stars Meet 2017

Sunday 19th November 2017
The Spa, Beckenham


Dear Officials, Team Managers, Coaches and Swimmers,

Many thanks for supporting Beckenham Swimming Club's Rising Stars Gala on Sunday.  There were lots of great swims and we hope that the swimmers enjoyed the day.  Click here for the results.

Thank you for your patience and understanding on the day given the technical issues we experienced which were beyond our control, especially in the morning session.  Rest assured that we are in discussion with MyTime Bromley to attempt to resolve these going forward.

Best wishes,
Emma Middleton and Sarah Carver




Dear Team Manager, Coaches and Swimmers,

 Beckenham Swimming Club are looking forward to welcoming you all to Beckenham Spa this weekend.  We have a full meet and are hoping for a great day with lots of fantastic achievements.

 There are 2 Sessions – timings are as follows:




Sign in closes



Warm Up



Start Time




We hope to finish approximately 5:30pm.

Warm up will be divided into 15 minute blocks starting with age 11 and under Boys. Sprint lanes will be available for the last 5 minutes of each warm up session.

There is ample parking at the Spa. We have negotiated a flat parking rate for the day. If you buy a 4 hour ticket (the maximum payable) and leave it visible in your car this will be adequate for the whole day. Parking is £4.40 for 4 hours. Unfortunately this arrangement is not possible if using Ringo.

The cafeteria is open all day serving hot and cold drinks and a selection of food. There is plenty of seating for spectators in the gallery. Entry fee is £4 per session and £6 for the day. There will also be a raffle.

Coach Packs will be available for collection on the day from the signing in tables. This will be located in the studio in the morning and the café area in the afternoon. All coaches and Officials are welcome to come to the Officials room during the day for a light breakfast, hot and cold drinks and lunch. We will also be providing poolside refreshments throughout the day.

As always, we would appreciate offers of help from your club Officials. Please let us know if you have any more volunteers.

Finally, please could be ask that NO NUTS or products containing nuts are brought poolside. This is a request from a visiting club due to the potential of a serious allergic reaction. Many thanks for your cooperation in this important matter.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to email us (beckenhamswim@outlook.com).

Thanks for your support and we look forward to seeing you all at the meet.

Best Wishes,

Emma and Sarah






Dear Swimmers, Coaches & Team Managers


Thank you for your support for our forthcoming Rising Stars Gala.  Accepted entries can be accessed here.  Please ensure you check the entries thoroughly as there were a few rejected entries due to the swimmer having no time and this gala has lower qualifying times.  

There will be NO time trials on the day.  Please let me know of any errors by close of play Friday 27th October.


We would appreciate help from officials and ask if each club entering 5 or more swimmers could try to provide at least 2 qualified J1 or above officials to cover both sessions.  Hot food and drinks are provided for all officials.  If you are able to help please email myself or David Ziwa (davidziwa@hotmail.com) with details.


If you have any queries, please contact me and I look forward to seeing you all at the gala.


Best wishes

Emma Middleton
