Sign In & On the Day Entries

Please remember to sign in for each session before warm-up starts. Full details are included within the warm-up schedule.

On the day entries will be accepted at a price of £5.50. All of these entries will be seeded, but will not be eligible for an award. No entries will be accepted from swimmers with times that are faster than the Upper Limits.


Spectator admission will be from the start of warm-up and the entry fee will be £5.00 per day or part of. Children under 12 are free. The leisure centre café will be open for you to purchase hot drinks and food throughout the meet.

For those with young children, there is a really nice park with an adventure playground behind the leisure centre. Exit the building at the main entrance, turn right and make your way around the building.


Parking is free, providing you register your car details on the machines inside the leisure centre if you are staying longer than 3 hours. Failure to do so will incur a fine.

‘Hot Heat’ Prizes

Random ‘hot heats’ will be announced throughout the meet, where winners of that heat will receive a spot prize.


Nick Barham (NB Photography) is a special events photographer based in Kent. He will be with us throughout the meet capturing the swimmers in action.

Your photography should focus on your family member(s) as much as possible and broadcasting images on social media platforms beyond your family group should be avoided. Flash photography is prohibited at all times.

Mobile Shops

Swimzi (Saturday only) and SwimPath (Saturday & Sunday) will have mobile shops for those who might like to buy some early Christmas presents. We would like to thank them for their raffle donations and ‘hot heat’ spot prizes. For ease, we’ve included links to their online shops below.
