Development Gala

Important information.

If you are going to the Development Gala on Saturday make sure you park at the right place.

Horsham District Council have introduced new and expensive parking fees with strict time limits on Saturday at the pool. Parking on Sunday is charged at £1.50 for the whole day.

Sussex ASA have hired alternative arrangements for parking at the College of Richard Collyer, about 1/2 mile from the pool. Learn more about the parking arrangements.

Winter Competition – new date

The dates for the Winter Competition have moved to 15 &16 October 2016.

The change has been brought about because the ASA moved the date of the National Counties Team competition which this year will now be held in Sheffield on the 23 October and we wanted to avoid a clash.

We have also moved the venue for the Winter Competition from Horsham to K2. This will allow swimmers to have more space, a warm down pool and be able to prepare properly for qualification into the South East Region Winter Competition.

The Sussex Winter Competition will be the last opportunity to qualify for the Regional Competition with entries closing on 17 October.

More information about the programme and qualifications times for the Sussex Winter Competition will be published over the coming weeks.

You can see details of the decision to change the date and venue for the Winter Competition here.

South East Region have organised a Development Day for Masters on Sunday 24 April at Sevenoaks Leisure Centre, Buckhurst Lane, Sevenoaks, Kent TN13 1LW.

Closing date for applications is Tuesday 19 April.

Full details are available on the Regional website
