The team championships take place at the Glass Mill Centre, Lewisham on Sunday 29 September

We expect to issue the Conditions, programme and other entry details during the course of June but in the meantime can confirm that there will be separate sessions for Open/Male teams and Female teams.

There will be 4 x 50m freestyle and medley relays for all the following age groups 12/u, 14/u, 16/u and Open. We will be running A finals for all events and if time allows B Finals to give as many swimmers as possible the chance of multiple races. This will entirely depend on the number of teams entered and the amount of warm up time needed before each session. We also hope that the timing will help clubs in the lead up to the first weekend of the National Arena Swimming League in October.

For those of you who do not know the Glass Mill Centre it is centrally located in Lewisham within 2/3 minutes of the mainline railway station and DLR. For those parents who do not want stay London Bridge can be reached in approximately 10 minutes by train. The Centre does have a car park and there is also plentiful unrestricted free car parking on Sundays in the vicinity. We appreciate this is another event nearer London and subject to availability would intend to look at a venue in East (or Mid) Kent in 2025

I do hope that as many Clubs as possible will enter and we can get this running again as an annual event.
