Nottingham Northern Swimming Club
Nottingham Northern Swimming Club is a friendly and competitive swimming club which welcomes both female and male swimmers of all abilities from the age of five years old. Training Sessions are held four times a week; twice at our home pool, Beechdale Swimming Centre, and once each at Ken Martin Leisure Centre and at Nottingham High School. The club organises an annual Nottingham Northern Junior Open Meet in June each year (Sunday 23rd June in 2013) and enters swimmers in a range of Galas throughout the year.
Northern Junior Open 2013: Nottingham Northern Swimming Club's annual Junior Open Meet will take place on Sunday 23rd June 2013 at Beechdale Swimming Centre. More information, a schedule and entry forms can be found on the Northern Junior Open 2013 page. The closing date for entries is 31st May 2013, although we have received a good response so far and may have to bring the closing date forward. So if you are considering entering then don't delay: get your forms in as soon as possible! For Northern swimmers hats are available at £5 each and more details of what to take on the day will be sent nearer the date.
Sponsored Swim: The club will hold its annual sponsored swim events to raise funds for the club during the normal training sessions on Sunday 19th May 2013 for lower pool swimmers and Monday 20th May for the main pool swimmers. This year we are trying to raise money to buy an iPad for the club which will be used to enable coaches to film swimmers to show them how to improve their techniques. If you would like to volunteer to help on poolside by counting lengths please let Diane Williams or Sharon Hodkinson know. If you are planning to swim please download a sponsorship form in Word or PDF format and get the sponsorship rolling in!

The information pack containing an entry form is available from the Galas and Diary Dates Page. Michelle Hammond would appreciate entry forms to her by the end of May.
Success at Rykneld Open Meet: What a brilliant day for our swimmers at the Rykneld Open Meet on the 4th May 2013. 13 trophies, 13 medals and 26 PBs were achieved! Well done to all the swimmers who tool part. See the results and the Swimmers Page for the updated PB lists.
Trials: There will be a trial session during training on Sunday 2nd June from 12:50pm at Beechdale. If anyone knows of any swimmers who would be eligible to swim in the main pool we have some spaces, and this is an opportunity to come along and try us out!
