Day Trip To Nationals – Sheffield, Thursday 3 August


- News, Upcoming Galas

On Thursday 3rd August we have 3 swimmers (Taryn, Alex and Thomas) competing in the 50m Freestyle at Nationals in Sheffield. It would be fantastic if some of their team mates could be there to cheer them on. It’s also a great opportunity for swimmers to sample the atmosphere at Ponds Forge.

Timetable would look a little like this;

  • 06:30 – Depart Chester-le-Street
  • 08:45 – Arrive Sheffield
  • 09:00 – Heats Start
  • There is a break from 12:30-17:00 to explore Sheffield then Finals Start at 17:30.
  • 19:30 – Depart Sheffield
  • 21:45 – Arrive Chester-le-Street (unless we stop in Wetherby for fish and chips)

The bus would cost in the region of £20 to £25 per head and the tickets for the day are £10.50 / £8.50
If anyone is interested in attending please leave details on the sheet on the noticeboard or alternatively email – if we get sufficient numbers we will confirm costs.

It would be fantastic if we could have a few there to cheers them on. Lorraine does her best but even she struggles to be heard in Ponds Forge!
