Merrylands SwimFest

We are holding the Merrylands SwimFest next Saturday (20th February, 2021). Warm up commences at 1.30pm with races starting at 2.30pm.

There are some changes this year given COVID-19 restrictions. Only six clubs will be attending and we will have designated areas assigned to each club. Please read the guidelines in place in the online program when it is published next week.

The COVID-19 drive-through test clinic continues to use part of the swimming centre carpark. Parking will remain limited. Please take care when walking from your car to the centre.

We ask for the help of all parents and members who are not competing in the SwimFest as we have many roles to undertake on the day. More details about the meet can be found here.
