COVID-19 Health Survey

Please ensure you have filled out our online COVID-19 Health Survey prior to your first session. You can complete it on your phone or computer in 2-3 minutes, and you only need to complete it once. If the survey is not completed you will not be able to swim.

COVID-19 Update

Swim England have provided guidance and advice, published on 20th June, outlining returning to swimming. To comply we have needed to make changes to session timings and they are operated in order to accommodate all swimmers, while delivering safe and organised training for swimmers and staff.

Please do not attend training sessions if:

  • You have had confirmed COVID-19 infection or any symptoms (fever, persistent cough, shortness of breath, loss of taste or smell, diarrhoea or vomiting, muscle aches not related to sport) in the last 5 months.
  • You have had a known exposure to anyone with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 in the last 2 weeks.
If you or your family have recently returned from abroad, please ensure that you adhere to the Government Guidelines for the specific country and quarantine for 14 days if needed. Please also adhere to social distancing and do not share lifts to and from training sessions.

We're delighted that we're able to return to training. Please follow the Club and Swim England COVID-19 guidelines to ensure a safe environment for all our swimmers and club members.


Funding update

Ware Swimming Club are really pleased to announce that the club received £500 from the Ware Town Council Covid-19 Fund. This enabled us to support the clubs' return to swimming at Ware Lido during August.

Return to Fanshawe

Dear Swimmer / Parent / Guardian

We are delighted to tell you that Ware SC intends to return to training at Fanshawe Pool from Monday, 7th September. We will be sending all members an email and expect a response by Tuesday 18th August. Please check your emails (including junk folder) and if you require the form to be sent to you separately or need help filling it in please contact Nicola Rix:

To comply with the Covid-19 Return to training guidelines from Swim England, we will need to make some changes to the session timings in order to accommodate all swimmers. Where possible we will endeavour to ensure that swimmers are in the same sessions pre Covid-19. Please note that we may also need to adjust the cost of sessions and this will depend on the number of swimmers per session.

For now, we need to know if you intend to return to training at Fanshawe Pool so please return the form attached to the email by midnight on Tuesday 18th August. We need a response from every swimmer so please complete the form even if you don't intend to return to training.

Once we have processed all the requests and allocated swimmers to sessions, you'll receive a follow up email confirming your sessions, the payment due, Covid-19 Health Forms and details of Zoom training sessions for returning to training at Fanshawe pool.

Allocating swimmers to sessions is a huge amount of work so please be patient as we process your request.
If you have questions or need further information, please contact Nicola Rix.

Kind regards
The Committee
Ware SC
