- AGM - just a reminder that this is at the Bridge Pub at PM tomorrow night at 7pm
- SPS Summer Festival Sun 30th June - St Paul's are holding their biannual Summer Festival and due to the numbers on site unfortunately all our sessions are cancelled next Sunday 30th June. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
- Summer Timetable - the normal timetable finishes at St Paul's on 7th July. We then go onto school's lockdown hours until the August break. Attached is the Summer timetable from 8th July to 10th August. We understand that during the first few weeks some schools will not have broken up so it will not be an issue if children arrive late for the session as we appreciate it will be difficult for some children to get there for a 3.30pm start. Once the coaches have been finalised the Summer Timetable will go onto the website.
Sessions will run as usual over the half term holiday (Sat 25th to Sun 2nd June) including the Bank Holiday Monday with the exception of Wed 29th where there will be no sessions for P2 and Masters as St Paul's Girls School is shut. Apologies for any inconvenience. P1 to swim at SPS from 6.30-8.30pm on that day.
We have also booked additional time at Crystal Palace which is open to P1 & 2 (shared with Wandsworth SC):
-Tues 28th (9-11)
-Wed 29th (9-11)
-Thurs 30th (9-11)
-Fri 31st (9-11)
Please find attached the Easter Timetable. We have managed to get slightly later swim times than usual during the SPS lockdown period which will hopefully help masters swimmers in particular to attend the sessions.
The live calendar will be updated shortly and the timetable will also go onto the website.
St Paul's shuts on Monday 17th December and reopens on Monday 7th January. The last sessions will be held on Sunday 16th September.
There will be no sessions for D4, D3 and D2 over this period. We have made arrangements for some sessions for D1, masters and the performance squads where we are able to get pool time. Check the live calendar for any update.
We are still waiting for confirmation from Chiswick New Pool for their Thurs night sessions but will let you know if there are any changes.
Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year.
Unfortunately St Paul's Girls is closed for maintenance over their half term so there will be no sessions there on 17th and 24th October.
Masters - no sessions 17th and 24th
P1 - swim at SPS 6.30-8.30 on 17th and 24th

Most P1 swimmers are away on the camp. Remaining swimmers to swim with JPD on Monday and P2 on other nights whilst Roxana is away.
St Paul's School breaks up this week for the summer holidays so Sunday 1st July is the last day on the normal timetable. From Mon 2nd July to Fri 3rd August BSC will operate on the summer timetable. This is on the front page of the website next to the news feed or on the attached link.
Our access to the SPS pool is from 3-7/7.30pm during the week. We appreciate that there may be difficulties for those children still at school and so have tried to ensure that each squad has sessions at different times to maximise potential attendance. Coaches will also be understanding if children arrive late to the earlier sessions.
The last masters session at St Paul's Girls school is on Wed 4th July. Despite trying all the local pools we have struggled to get any extra time for masters later in the evening other than Brentford on a Thursday which we have booked all summer. We are still trying to find pool time for masters and the timetable will be updated if we are successful.
All sessions will continue as normal over half term (W/C28/5/18) except for:
Mon 28th May – bank holiday –2 lanes – 9am-11am (P1 & P2)
Tues 29th May – 2 lanes – 8am-10am (P1 & WW)
Wed 30th May – 2 lanes - 11am-1pm (P1 & WW)
Thurs 31st May – 2 lanes – 10am-12pm (P1 & WW)
Fri 1st June – 2 lanes – 11am-1pm (P1 & P2)
The Easter Timetable is on the home page on the website and the live calendar will be updated shortly:
Unfortunately St Paul's Girls is out of action for three weeks after Easter and we haven't been able to get any extra pool time elsewhere due to the closure of Chiswick. We have managed to get an extension Mon-Wed for SPS until 7.30pm and have 2 sessions booked at Crystal Palace for those who want to swim long course.
Swimming sessions will continue over half term as usual except:
There will be some additional sessions for P1 at Crystal Palace which will be notified separately.
Don't forget the last normal sessions before Christmas are on Monday 18th December. There are extra sessions arranged in 2 lanes for:
A reminder for masters that there will be no Thurs pm sessions in the New Year for the foreseeable future due to the refurbishment of Chiswick. Ealing Chiswick have taken our slot at Acton until the Chiswick building works are completed.
Wishing you all a merry Christmas and a happy new year!
