GDPR Compliance Our Membership Secretary has previously sent out consent forms with regards to the GDPR regulations that come into force later this month.  If you have not already completed and returned this form, from 25th May, we will not be able to publish any information about your swimmer(s) in any emails/newsletters, the Club noticeboards or on the website (public OR members area) - so we will have to remove your swimmer(s) details from these areas - including any Pointscore times, confirmation of gala entries, congratulations on swims etc.  Can you please therefore ensure that this is either returned to the desk tomorrow, or emailed to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Adult Swimming Sessions This week was the first week for this session and it was a great hit for those taking part – tiring, but they all survived it (& I'll bet had a great night's sleep after it!).  There are still a few places left for adults who would like to keep up their fitness with swimming sessions during the Thursday night training session.  Please see the email sent out last week regarding this if you're interested, or just email Helen at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Stopwatches A few of our stopwatches are currently missing from our stock.  If you have previously been timekeeping at Pointscore events can you check if you've taken one home by accident.  If so, can you please return this to the desk at the leisure centre as soon as possible.
Fun Triathlon A date of 7th July 2018 has been set for this event.  More details to follow by separate email in the next few days. 
Trafford Spring Meet, Sale Sunday 13th May 2018 We have over 40 swimmers taking part in this gala tomorrow.  Good luck to everyone! In the morning, it's 8am warm-up for boys and 8.30am for girls and in the afternoon it's 1pm warm-up for girls and 1.30pm for boys.
Manchester Open Meet Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th May 2018 Good luck also to our 3 swimmers competing at this gala this weekend.
School Success A huge congratulations to Matthew H.  His St Ambrose Water Polo team competed this week in the U13 English National Championships in Northampton and came away with Silver medals – well done!
Sponsorship Opportunity As was announced earlier in the year, we are looking at updating the Club logo.  We're also taking the opportunity to offer the possibility of sponsorship to anyone affiliated with the Club.  Initially we'll be looking at the kit being bought by the swimmers attending this year's Swim Camp.  
This would be worn poolside in Altrincham, external individual and team galas around the North West, County, Regional and even National Championships, and of course on Swim Camp in Spain.  It will therefore be seen by a massive audience, so is a great chance to advertise your business on a global (well almost) scale.
If anyone would be interested in this, please can you get in touch at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
Open Water Swimming There is an open water swimming event taking place on 16th June 2018.  Details of this have been sent out previously and are also on the Club notice board at the leisure centre.

Summer BBQ - 7 September 2018

It's a while away yet, but a Summer BBQ is being organised for the evening of Friday 7th September 2018.  In a departure from tradition, we're trying something a bit different this year and a hog roast will be served (with vegetarian alternative).  Hopefully there will be other exciting things happening on the night, so try to save the date as we'd like as many members as possible to attend. More details will be available nearer the time.
