Congratulations to all the swimmers that took part, with many thanks to our coaching team, poolside helpers and officials who helped out on the day. All times have been added to the results section in the members area click here.

Colin Davies Gala

At the weekend Ware SC took two teams to the Colin Davies Gala held at Letchworth 50m open air pool.
A special mention to all the children who made their debut performance; Ella Reed, Joseph Reed and William Clarke, and to those children swimming for the first time in a 50m pool. Swimming your first gala in a 50m pool is not for the faint-hearted, especially for those who did backstroke as you do not have a ceiling to help guide you and cannot see how far away the end is. All other galas will seem easy in comparison.

Well done to all swimmers with the final results seeing Ware Red Team in 1st place with 111 points and Ware Blue Team in 6th place with 208 points. The photograph shows the two current vice captains Katie Egerton and Louis Cripps collecting the winners trophy.

Thank you to everyone who braved the weather including all our spectators and officials. All times have been added to the results section in the members area click here.

Club Championships

In preparation for this year's Club Championships, the "No Times" report is available for swimmers to use. The report can be accessed by:

  • Logging into the members area
  • Selecting the Championship Entry option in the Championship Panel
  • Selecting the No Times Report option in the Championship Details Panel.
The report identifies any event in the 2019 Club Championships for which the swimmer does not have a time that is eligible for the seeding process.

Not having a valid time does not prevent entry to an event but will mean a seeding in the first heat.

For those swimmers who do not have a login to the members area or who have forgotten their passwords please contact web@waresc.org.uk.

Valid times can be obtained up until the 31st July. Claire and the coaching team will be running time trials over the course of week commencing 3rd June for those swimmers that need times.

More detailed instructions on the report and how it can be used can be accessed by the info icon displayed on the report banner.

Full details about this year's championships can be found in the licencing document which can be accessed via the "Information pack" option in the Championship Details panel.
