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 and enters swimmers in a range of Galas throughout the year.
Northern Junior Open 2015
The Northern Junior Open 2015 will take place at Beechdale Swimming Centre on Sunday 28th June. Swimmers aged 9 to 14 on the day will compete at all four 50m strokes and 100m IM. Trophies will be awarded to all finalists and to the top club, top boy and top girl. More information and a list of all entries are available to access from the Northern Junior Open 2015 page. Due to the popularity of this event this year we have had to close entries early, although there will be a short waiting list to replace any swimmers who have to withdraw before the event.
Here is the J Tibbitts Cup, presented annually to the Top Club at the Open. Sutton Swimming Club are the current cup holders and will be returning in 2015 to defend their top slot!
Upcoming Galas: The Ripley Rascals Junior B Grade Open Meet takes place in Alfreton on Sunday 5th July 2015. Entries to Michelle by Friday 8th May please as this is a very popular gala and often closes early. Also, Leander are hosting the Tony Holmes Sprint Meet at Beechdale on Sunday 12th July. Entries via Michelle please. Please see the Galas and Diary Dates Page for information and entry forms for these and other upcoming galas and other dates in the life of the club.

Notts ASA County Champs 2015: Brilliant weekends at the counties with more PBs achieved. We had a boys team at Counties this year which was Sharon's first boys team in 10 years. They came 10th in their freestyle relay and 9th in the medley relay. The girls came 6th in their medley relay but unfortunately had to withdraw from their freestyle relay; it was very exciting watching them all swim. Well done to all our swimmers who got medals and got PBs and all those who qualified and we hope we have even more next year. Visit the Swimmers Page for the updated PB lists and photos of some of the squad.
Notts ASA Stage 3 Gala Final Round, 21st March, Bramcote: We had a good team with a lot of close finishers. 10 PBs were achieved and we came 4th as a team. Well done to all our swimmers. Visit the Swimmers Page for the updated PB lists.
Junior Gala, 22nd March, Beechdale: This event was for all our swimmers in the lower pools. Thanks to all the helpers who assisted with the task of trying to get everyone in a race and sorting them all out on the day. 72 PBs were achieved, so well done to all our swimmers who are improving so well. Visit the Swimmers Page for the updated PB lists.
