Attached is the revised list from Bath.  There are a lot of changes to the races that have been offered.


This is the final list of accepted entries.  It only shows those actually swimming.


Bath will be operating sign in sheets for every session.  These will need to be handed in  to the office by the pool within 15 minutes of the start of warm-up for that session..  It will allow Bath to offer deck entries


Deck entries will be on a first come first served basis.  They will need to include a time so we know whether to put people into the level 1 or 3 event.  Deck entries will not be billed on the day.  Bath will keep a record, and adjust the club’s refund accordingly.

Silent Auction!!

Sun 17 September 2017 at 3:09pm

Dear Parent / Guardian,


I am writing to you to inform you of our upcoming Silent Auction, due to be held at Soundwell Swimming Club between 1 and 21 November 2017.


The Auction will be the primary fundraiser for our 2 training camps that will take place in 2018. 


In order to make the event a success, we are requesting that all swimmers get involved in this event, so are writing to you to request a donation of a service or an item for the Silent Auction. This could be a personal donation, or do you know of a local business who could offer an donation or service?    


In acknowledgement of the donations received, sponsors will be recognised on our event literature which will reach the families of all swimmers & coaches, and will be posted on our Website and at the Leisure Centre. 


About the Auction

It will primarily be run through the club desk, however information and updates will also be posted regularly on the website and on our Notice Board at the pool. Bids can also be made via email.

Each swimmer will be given an event program detailing the items available, along with details about the auction and bidding process. A copy will also be added to the website.


In order to prepare the documentation in time for the Auction Start on 1st November, we are asking that any donations are received by Friday 20th October.

Donations can be handed in at the desk or sent to the club, care of 24 Oakdale Close, Bromley Heath, Bristol. BS16 6ED or can be emailed to

Kind regards,

The meet was oversubscribed.  COB were only able to offer some places in Event 9 (Girls 200m Backstroke) and Event 11 (Girls 200m Freestyle).  

The names of the girls who wanted to swim these races were therefore put into a “virtual swimming hat” and drawn at random.  The remaining girls have been scratched from the races, and we have asked COB to let us know if any further places become available in these events
