BOBCATS enter a team in the North East Lancs Friendly League each year.

There will be 4 clubs taking part in the 2023 League:

BOBCATS were crowned champions in 2022 and we are hoping for another successful season this year.


2023 Fixtures:

Wednesday 25th May (Away) vs. Accrington

Friday 9th June (Home) vs. Accrington

Monday 16th October (Away) vs. Great Harwood


Each club competes in Home and Away matches against each other, clubs receive 2 points for a win and one point for a draw.

The object of the league is to encourage swimmers aged 9 years and over to compete who would not normally be competing in other leagues and/or individual competitions. All races are 25 metres for swimmers in the 9-11 years age group and 50 metres for older swimmers.

The competition is open to all BOBCATS members from Pre-Squad through to Club Squad and Competitive Squads. It’s always great to see a real mix of BOBCATS swimmers all coming together and supporting each other.

If you would like to be part of the team, please get in touch and we will try our best to provide the opportunity to swim in one of the next matches.

Please note, swimmers are not allowed to compete in strokes where they have a Lancashire / Regional qualifying time.
