Entries open for Winsford Gala Saturday 7th December

As part of the club’s gala schedule Mike has targeted the Winsford Swimming Club Christmas Development Meet taking place on Saturday Dec 7th.

As it is a gala with no lower end entry times it is an ideal meet for newer and older swimmers alike. It is a perfect gala for those starting out with Dolphins looking to take their first steps into competitive swimming, whilst swimming alongside the older more experienced swimmers who can help and guide the newer Dolphins through the experience.

It is also a great opportunity for those chasing last minute County times to qualify for the Lancashire Championships in January.

Information for the gala can be found at the link below:


Entries for this gala are direct with the organisers and not through the usual route via. However we would ask if you are entering this gala, that you email [email protected] so we can gauge numbers and monitor entries. Entry to the gala is done via the following link:


As it is Christmas and we will be in the party mood we are looking to run transport to this event if there is enough interest. This will come at an extra cost yet to be determined.

For any parents or swimmers with questions about the gala entry process or just wanting to know more about galas in general, members of the committee will be at the Dolphins/D3 session at Ribblesdale on Monday (30th Sept), the Wednesday (2nd Oct) D3 session at Stonyhurst and the Thursday Dolphins (3rd Oct) session at Ribblesdale. They will be more than happy to answer questions or help in the entry process. As we are a competitive swimming club we are keen for our swimmers to enter galas where they have the chance.

Due to this weekends North Lancashire Championships taking place at Palatine Leisure Centre and several swimmers in attending the Clitheroe Grammar entrance exam, we are reluctantly cancelling Saturday morning (28th Sept) Land and Pool training sessions at Roefield and Ribblesdale respectively.
