Christmas Party On Zoom 23/12/20 at 6pm

We will be hosting a Christmas Party on Zoom on Wednesday 23rd December at 6pm. We have a Christmas Quiz to start things off. We know this can’t replace being able to go swimming, but hopefully this will give us a chance to all catch up after what has been a difficult year. Feel free to wear your Christmas jumpers and bring a mince pie to eat! We might even sing some Christmas carols too!

If you would like an invite sending via email, with the meeting details on, please let Marie know, either via Facebook or

Hope to see you there!

Update 1st September 2020.

Following discussions with the leisure centre management, to discuss if our club will be able to reopen, whilst adhering to social distancing measures and keeping our members, volunteers and staff safe, it has been agreed that when the leisure centre next review and update their timetable, there will be a 50 minute swim  (main pool only) from 6pm on a Friday evening for disabled swimmers. This will be an individual lane swim, similar to the public arrangements with only 3 lanes being used. Swimmers need to be able to swim continuously for several lengths and preferably for the duration of their swim. For the latest information on changing and showers please refer to the Everyone Active website.Please keep checking the website for the latest updates. We do hope to be able to welcome all swimmers back soon.

Thank you.

24th August 2020.

We have had a few enquiries as to when our club will be open to members again. We just wanted to let you know that we have seen your queries and an update on the club situation will be coming soon. Individuals can book lane swimming on the everyone active website


We have received this letter from NASCH with their latest news update.

Dear Secretary,

As you will appreciate, with swimming pools closed due to the pandemic, none of our Clubs have been operating since lockdown in March.  Nobody has been able to swim and It does not appear that the pools will be open any time soon.  This is very disappointing for us all, especially the swimmers.

The NASCH Committee have discussed the situation and have decided that there would be no time for our swimmers to get ready to take part in Club or Regional selection for our Championship Gala, even when the pools reopen.  They have, therefore, with regret, decided not to hold the Championship Gala this year.

We have, therefore, written to cancel our booking at Newbold Comyn Leisure Centre on 7th November 2020.

We are, however, booking the pool for Saturday, 6thNovember 2021 when hopefully our NASCH Championships will take place in 2021.   Whilst writing I can let you know that Woodlarks Camp has been booked for Saturday 22nd to 29th May 2021.  We hope to see you at both events.


Best wishes,

Rosemary O’Leary

NASCH Administrator

COVID-19 Coronovirus

COVID-19 (Coronovirus)
Following advice from several sources it is considered safe to use public pools. However, it is very important to follow the guidelines regarding social contact and contact with surfaces. This is particularly relevant for those who do not go in the water. It is advisable to use a gel after passing through changing rooms and after leaving the building.
Unless there is a further update there will be a session on Friday 20th as usual.
