Most of what we do is electronic and online: gala results, PBs, records, team selection, rankings, gala entry, gala qualifying, and so on. As a club member, you can do a lot of this yourself, by using the menus above. The other stuff is behind the scenes, which means that only club officials have access to it. The table below shows you what you, as a club member, can do using the menus here:

PBs Find your PBs, or all the club PBs, here.
All times List all your results (whether or not they're PBs), at any or all licence levels, from a specific date, or for all time.
Find the results for a specific gala, including PBs and CSPAs. CSPAs are ASA time standards; in some circumstances, we may award a 'flash' when a specific CSPA has been achieved.

List the club records, or the best times achieved in the past year.

Note that we have recently changed from a 'cumulative' record system, to the more common 'age group' system. Previously, if a swimmer achieved a record at a particular age (13, for example), and this record was faster than the record for an older age group (14, for example), then the swimmer was awarded both the 13- and the 14-year-old records. Under the new 'age group' system the swimmer will only get the record for 13-year-olds. The age group system is used by other local clubs, and in British Age Group records. What this means, in practice, is that we are currently short of some records, particularly for older swimmers, since we don't have complete historical data. This will fix itself over time.

For our club records, the swimmer age is taken on the day of the swim, and not on the following December 31st.

  • Online entries: this is the place to enter galas. You can't enter on paper, or by asking nicely; you have to do it here.
  • Gala qualifying: find out how close you are to reaching the qualifying times for a gala.
  • Gala information: find out about a gala: when it is, what the entry requirements are, when online entries will open and close, and so on.
  • Gala entry reports: find out who else has entered, or what events you've already entered for.

Email test
  1. Select your name in the pull-down list below, and click 'Send'. We will send a test email to every address that we have recorded for you. This email is constructed in a way that is likely to trigger your spam filters, if you have any.
  2. The test email should arrive within a few seconds, but may take longer if your mail provider is busy.
  3. If the mail does not appear in your inbox, please check your spam folder. If the mail is in your spam folder, mark it as 'Not spam', and send yourself another test email. Repeat until the mail is delivered direct to your inbox. If our test email continues to be delivered to your spam folder, proceed to step 4 below.
  4. If you do not receive our test email within a reasonable period (20 minutes or so), or you cannot convince your provider that the test email is not spam, then you will need to take special action to 'whitelist' us. We have published instructions for this. Please contact us if you do not know where these instructions are, or if you need help with them.
  5. If you are not receiving our emails, then we may simply have the wrong address for you. You will need to contact us to confirm your address. We cannot display your address(es) on this page for security and privacy reasons.
  6. Please let us know what happened when you followed these instructions. We need to know what email address you were testing, and (1) whether you initially received our test email without any problems; or (2) if you successfully marked a test email as 'Not spam'; or (3) whether you had to whitelist us.
