Facilities

Some readers will have seen the article in the Evening Standard about plans for the Chelsea Swimming Pool  http://www.standard.co.uk/news/london/anger-over-plans-to-create-unisex-changing-rooms-at-chelsea-swimming-pool-a3372896.html.  Please do not assume that local authorities and other pool owners will have told either the ASA or the Region of any plans they may have for existing or new facilities (much less sought our expert advice on the impact on the sport or local clubs).  We would be very grateful if you would share information with Norman Edgell (London Region Board Member) and Suzanne Philpott (ASA).

Refreshed London Swimming Website

Information about Swim21 now includes changes to the accreditation coming in from December 2016 and also some detail explaining how clubs can find their unique Clubmark ID number should they be applying for funding or to use the Sainsbury’s Active Kids voucher.  We have also added a Frequently Asked Questions section.
