New Date for the Water Festival – Sunday 27th November

Please can all clubs confirm they can still attend the revised date – thank you.

Birmingham Swimming Action Group is pleased to announce its seventh Birmingham interclub Water Festival – a gala for swimmers age 8, 9, 10 Yrs (on 27th Nov) who have limited or no experience of competitive swimming – e.g. Have not previously entered an Open Meet and have not swum in the Nuneaton Junior League.

The invited Birmingham Clubs are:

  • Boldmere
  • Camp Hill Edwardians
  • Fox Hollies
  • Orion
  • Perry Beeches SSS
  • Blythe Barracudas
  • Kingsbury

The above clubs need to confirm that they wish to accept the invitation to send swimmers by 7th September 2016.

Awards: will be presented to the first three places in each year group in each event.

Entry Times: These are used to ‘seed’ swimmers into heats of broadly similar ability. Swimmers and Coaches should check their entry times are within (slower than) the published upper cut-off times for 9Yrs and 10Yrs. If the event is oversubscribed – and to ensure the objectives of the meet are fulfilled – the organisers will reject swimmers with the fastest submitted entry times.

Entries: Electronic entry forms (for clubs to adapt and use internally) can be requested from and are available on the website

The official closing date for clubs to submit their consolidated entries (using electronic files provided ) is : 20th October.


Volunteers and Officials are needed to help run the event. We require each club to bring timekeepers, judges, stewards etc to help run this event. All clubs will be required to bring at least 6 volunteers, but more will be happily accepted. All clubs will be required to nomianate one person to attend meetings prior to this event, to help in it’s organisation.
