Arena League

The second round of Arena League is on Saturday 9th November at Inspire Luton.  Putteridge is hosting so would love to see lots of support in the galary at our home pool. The following swimmers have been selected to represent Putteridge. Lawrence has selected the team based on previous results, form and training attitude.

The races that individual swimmers are racing will not be communicated prior to the gala, no one needs to know what they are racing everyone is fit and physically able to swim any event on the programme and therefore will swim what they are selected for.

Again parents as well, do not need to know what their children are swimming, so please do not ask, if any issues with this please email Lawrence directly/ talk to him.

Arrive time: 5:15-5:30
Warmup: 6pm
