European Aquatics Championships in London, May 2016

A personal message from Ryan Bangs, Marketing & Communications Manager LEN European Aquatics Championships 2016.

My name is Ryan and I look after everything media, comms, PR and marketing for the European Aquatics Championships that are taking place at the London Aquatics Centre in May. I hope this message finds you well.

I wanted to introduce myself and just let you know that I have contacted a few of the Regional Club Development Officers to share a bit of an update on the Championships seeing as there are now less than two months to go. Essentially, as an OC we absolutely want as many diving, synchronised swimming and swimming clubs in the UK to be able to come to London to watch the action unfold.

Any support you can give in helping us communicate to clubs would be very much appreciated. Ticket sales are going well, the weekend swimming finals are no longer available and we released extra tickets for the men’s 10m platform diving final, which was previously unavailable, last month.

Tickets for groups of ten or below can be bought from here For bookings of more than ten we have a dedicated number to call, which is 0800 358 0058.

We believe our prices to be reasonable considering the way the sports market is going with synchronised swimming starting at £10, diving at £15 and swimming at £20. We also have discounts if you purchase certain sessions during the first five days.

As mentioned, we want absolutely as many people as possible from clubs that are interested in aquatics to experience and benefit from the Championships. In order for us to further reach out to clubs, I shared with the Officers a downloadable link with various posters and leaflets that we have had produced. For your reference the link to these is here:

If there is anything else that you think would work particularly well then do please let me know. I am very keen to work collaboratively together so anything you might need from me, please do just say.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks in advance,


Ryan Bangs

Trafford Borough ‘Time Trial’ Meet

Good Evening All,

For those of you already entered into this event, unfortunately, Swim Trafford have needed to postpone the gala until next week, now re-scheduled to Wednesday 2nd March, starting at 6pm and ending at around 8pm.  James Stannard passes on his apologies for this late alternation and hopes all of you that have entered are still able to attend.  If you’ve paid an entry fee and are unable to attend, contact details for James appear below.

On the plus side, it does allow for anybody wishing still to enter to do so.  A link to print off the entry form is given below.  It can be returned directly to James via email by Tuesday 1st March (pass any payment directly at the event).

Good luck to anybody taking part.
 A Message from James Stannard (Head Coach at Swim Trafford – the borough performance swimming squad), who is arranging to take a team from the Borough clubs to compete in the regional Micro League during 2016 (a little like a mini-Arena League).  Opportunity to compete in a team event.
Good Evening All,
Please find attached an entry form for the time trial event we will be holding at the end of February
The event will be for swimmers aged 12 years and under who will be eligible to compete in this year’s Micro League. From the results at the time trials I’ll register swimmers with the league and pick the team for the first meet in March.
I’ve put an entry fee of £5 for all four races which is to be used to help cover the costs of competing in the league.
Any questions please let me know. Entries can be returned to me by email or to the Swim Office at Stretford (for info., this is located up the stairs and rather than turn left to the cafe, turn right.  You will find the swim office on the right hand side and a letter box to post entries).
Many Thanks
Swim Trafford Head Performance Coach
