London Pride 2014

Added on by Christophe Claux.

The big day is almost up on us. We will be parading through the streets of Sunny London on Saturday 28 June 2014.

As we are a swim team, we want everyone in their brightest possible swim wear. Vibrant colours, eye catching designs, anything that's going to help us stand out.

Pride in London 2013 was a huge success and it was delivered by amazing volunteers from across the LGBT+ community alongside fabulous straight allies. 

We want 2014 to be an even bigger success but for that to happen we need your help. 

The parade starts at 1pm, so we need everyone to be there by 11am. You will see us all standing on Portman Close near to Baker Street Tube Station.

Once the parade is over (15:00) we will be drinking around the streets of Soho.

Its going to be lots and lots of fun. You do not want to miss this!!!

London Aquatic Centre - Sunday Morning Swims

Added on by Thomas Harris.

Some great news just hot off the press – we have managed to secure two lanes at the 50 metre pool in the London Aquatic Centre (Stratford) on Sunday mornings from 09:00 to 10:00.  The sessions will start from Sunday 22nd June (so NOT this Sunday).

A few important points:

  • The sessions will be open to all main club swimmers in groups 1,2,3 or 4
  • It is likely that almost all of these sessions will need to be coached from the water (and a set will be e-mailed to one of the swimmers ahead of time)
  • We will carefully monitor the popularity of this slot; in particular, whether or not the slot in any way relieves the busyness at any of our other swimming sessions
  • At the moment, we have booked this session across most of this summer.  We will take stock when we get to September as to whether or not to continue with it.

Most importantly, of course, there will doubtless be a breakfast trip after a Sunday morning session – a guilt-free full English is a wonderful thing.

We continue to keep our eye out for swimming slot availability in different pools around London.... but this one is a great win!
