The early swimmers can join the splash session after their swim and the later swimmers can join in the splash session at 6.30pm and then swim their later session.

Worcester UPDATE

Please note age on day for entry to this meet i.e.: October 8th and not 31st December

Worcester's 20th Short Course Open Meet will take place over the weekend of 7th & 8th October, a week earlier than previous years, so that times posted will qualify for the Short Course Regionals championships.

Please also note Perdiswell is a new 25m pool from the Sansome Walk pool used in previous years and so will be popular so get your entries in quick!

Note: closing date for entries 28th July.
