Following government advice about Coronavirus and the new Swim England notification, the Peninsular Group have decided to cancel all galas until the end of May, when things will be reviewed.

ALL club training sessions are also cancelled until further notice.

 

Consequently the gala that was due to take place this Saturday March 21st, has now been cancelled.

Swim England statement regarding coronavirus outbreak - 17 March 2020

Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced on Monday 16 March a range of measures to help combat the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Having further reviewed the guidance, it is Swim England’s interpretation that club activity falls into the ‘public gathering’ category and therefore it is strongly advising clubs to consider cancelling or postponing activity – including events – until the end of May.

Swim England will suspend talent activities across all disciplines with immediate effect, having already announced the decision to cancel all national events until the end of May.

This will include all international and domestic camps, competitions and related activities such as coach conferences across all aquatic sports.

British Swimming, which has also cancelled and postponed a number of events, is speaking to its elite athletes regarding training in the forthcoming weeks.

Jane Nickerson, Swim England Chief Executive, recognised the worries from clubs and learn to swim providers but said a final decision on whether to call off sessions and events had to rest with them.

She added: “We strongly advise on what we believe is the best course of action in the interests of our coaches, teachers, athletes, learners and volunteers.

“We will review this on an ongoing basis and continue to provide updates.”

Meanwhile, George Wood, Swim England’s Sport Development Director, has said the suspension on talent activities will be in place until further notice.
