Offers an opportunity to all club swimmers to compete to gain swim times for all gala events

Swim Events 2016

Leighton Buzzard Swimming Club participates in a number of galas throughout the year. There are different types of galas some of which swimmers are selected by the head coaches to participate in and other in which the swimmer has the option of entering themselves to get personal times for selected strokes and distances. 

  • Open Meets are competitions organised by one club and held as a single event over one or two days of a weekend. These are not League galas but offer swimmers an opportunity to log their own times and achievements. They do have qualifying times which swimmers need to achieve before they can compete.
