Nottingham Northern Junior Open 2016
Updated entry lists, the programme and a draft timeline for the 40th Nottingham Northern Junior Open, being held on Sunday 26th June 2016 at Harvey Hadden Sports Village, have now been published here.
Notts and Derby League Gala, Hucknall, Saturday 18th June 2016: We had some good races at this gala but being very short on boy swimmers we missed out on 6 races. Another great gala for PBs: 18 were achieved, so well done to all our swimmers and A Big Thank You to all the helpers at this gala. Visit the Swimmers Page for the updated PB lists.
Notts ASA Stage 1 Trophy Gala, Bramcote, Saturday 11th June 2016: We nearly had a full team for this gala which was good. There were a few disqualifications but 23 PBs were achieved. Well done to all who took part. Visit the Swimmers Page for the updated PB lists.

Club Captains: Congratulations to our two new Club Captains, Matthew Anderson and Phoebe Ackroyd, elected at the 2016 Annual General Meeting of the club.
Membership Fees: As mentioned in our last newsletter, we have increased our monthly fees by £2 per month with effect from 1st January 2016. As you are aware, pool time has considerably increased since we moved to Harvey Hadden, and this has greatly benefitted our swimmers over the last 3 months. Could you please, therefore, alter your standing orders as soon as possible to either £24 for Category 1 swimmers or £25.50 for Category 2 swimmers. (This amount includes yearly membership fees to the ASA). Please contact Diane if you have any problems with the payment of fees. Thank you.
Club Newsletter: The November edition of "The Northerner" is now available to read and download. Please visit the Club Newsletter Page to catch up.
