Club summer social and BBQ – Mon 27th August

Our Club summer social and BBQ will take place on Monday 27th August (Bank Holiday) at Curborough Hall Farm, Watery Lane, Lichfield – 4.00pm start.

This is a great chance to get to meet your fellow members outside of the swimming pool and (hopefully) with their clothes on! There will be plenty of food – just bring your own drinks – and games for the children plus plenty of space for them to run around. If the weather is bad there’s plenty of room inside too.

Everyone welcome – bring your friends and family. Free to members and under 16s, £5 for all others.

 

 

Burntwood Aquathlon cancelled

Unfortunately due to heavy snow overnight we have cancelled today’s race.
We have fought hard to keep the race going and thank you to everyone who has supported us but, with more heavy snow now forecast this morning, it just isn’t safe.
We will be in touch with all entrants in the next couple of days; meanwhile, stay warm and stay safe!

Burntwood Aquathlon – final start times

The final start times for Sunday’s race are available here. There have been a few changes to race numbers and a few people have moved one wave since the provisional list was published so please check

The race will still be running so long as the pool is open and we can get there! The forecast is better for tomorrow than today but it will still be cold so bring some extra layers + hat and gloves!

If anything disastrous happens with the weather overnight all entrants will be emailed and a notice posted on this website and our Facebook page before 7am.

Cost: Free to members; £5 non-members

 

Annual General Meeting – Tuesday 27th March

All members are invited to attend. This is your chance to have a say in how the Club is run so please come along!

A full agenda will follow

Training over the Christmas period

There will be no Club sessions between in Christmas week or New Year week except the Thursday swim at Abbots Bromley which will be running uninterrupted throughout. So, if you feel a need to get out of the house and do some exercise after the Christmas festivities, join us at Abbots Bromley pool on Thursday 28th December (and Thursday 4th Jan) 7.30pm. If there is any change to this I will email our members and post on our Facebook page as soon as I know.

Happy Christmas!
