Warm up remains at 8am. Thanks to Trafford Leisure and the clubs for helping ensure the gala can still go ahead. Sorry for any inconvenience that might be caused by the change of venue.

What a great weekend of swimming in this season’s Club Championships. The third oldest championship record broken by Erin H by 1/100th of a second (Clare Crewdson’s 1983 100m Butterfly) amongst 20 other new records set. Asking around after the event, there was nobody to recall 21 records going in a single Championships. Nearly every swimmer set at least 1 PB during the event, near enough 70% of swims being new best times.
