About the Meets


Long Eaton

This is a long distance event with the shortest distance being 400m Front crawl and 400m Individual Medley (4 lengths of each stroke). This is aimed at a small number of swimmers looking to get County times in these events.

Falcon Sprint Meet

This is very much open to everyone as it is sprint gala with no qualifying times so is a perfect first Open Meet for swimmers new to Open Meets. The events are over 50m (2 lengths) in any of the four strokes and a 100m Individual Medley (IM – 1 length of each stroke). Swimmers can do as many of the five events as they like!

Major Oak Open Meet

This is a Level 3 Open Meet where there are qualifying times that swimmers have to be able to achieve to enter that event. There is a real mixture of events over the two days across all strokes and 50m, 100m and 200m distances and is a good event for those trying for County times in specific events.
