Gala Colour (70 of 70)

Wandsworth Swimming Club is a competitive swimming club. Once a swimmer becomes a member they will be offered opportunities to attend swimming galas or meets. Under Swim England Rules swimmers who have not yet reached their ninth birthday may ONLY compete in internal club galas.

The young swimmers' first experience of competitive swimming in the club will usually be in one of our Mini-Galas, which we hold on a regular basis at Ernest Bevin College pool (approximately three times per season). During these Mini-Galas our youngest swimmers from Pre-Development and Development 1 & 2 squads are given opportunities to swim one or two length races in each of the four strokes (Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke and Butterfly) in a fun, friendly yet competitive environment.  Swimmers are ranked by age, youngest first, and often swim in mixed-gender individual races and relays.
