The Prelim Gala Friday 24th September, 7 to 9pm, Keynsham Swimming Pool. Our first full club gala in the refurbished Keynsham Swimming Pool is the best one – the Preliminary Squad Gala. We’ll assume all squad members will be competing, but if your swimmer isn’t able to, please let me know at [email protected] This is so we can pre-plan the programme without empty lanes. Full details at: https://uk.teamunify.com/team/reczzkscor/controller/cms/admin/index?team=reczzkscor#/calendar-team-events There is a charge of £2 per swimmer to cover the cost of medals. The gala will be run as a pentathlon,...

Keynsham Euros 2020 Saturday 25th September, 1 to 5pm, Keynsham Swimming Pool. We would like to see as many of our swimmers as possible compete at our club gala* in just over a week’s time. We currently have entrants from all squads and from amongst our performance swimmers. This is the first chance since 2019 to achieve a club record (see the downloads section on our website for the current record holders) but more importantly is an opportunity to swim in a competitive environment and earn a few PBs. Individual...

Dear Parents/carers,swimmers Hope everyone is keeping well. Great news re restrictions lifting from 19th July, but as you all know there are still plenty of infections around particularly in the Bristol area. Both leisure centre changing rooms and spectator areas will be open. Entry and exits will be through the normal doors. At Keynsham if it’s busy at the top of the stairs when you exit you can go out through the fire exit. ( the door you used to go through when you arrived) I would suggest your swimmer...

Good evening, We were disappointed today, as I’m sure you were, to learn that swimming pools were amongst the list of places that are still to be given an opening date. We are fully in support of Swim England’s #OpenOurPools campaign. Swim England is calling on its members, clubs, coaches, teachers, swim schools, swimmers and facility operators to back its #OpenOurPools campaign. Chief Executive Jane Nickerson has said millions of people are being let down by the Government’s decision not to allow pools to reopen on 4 July. So, we...
