The Nottinghamshire ASA Low Level Gala (Stage 1, 2 and 3) Registration Meeting for the 2024 Nottinghamshire Gala Series will take place on Thursday 12th October at The Venue Snooker Club, Kirklington Road, Rainworth 7:30pm
We invite all clubs that wish to take part in the 2024 Gala Series to send a minimum of 1 representative, to register your teams in the 2024 Gala Series.
At the meeting we will be discussing the changes to the 2024 format, especially with the introduction of the Swim England’s Transgender Policy for Competitions. David Fortescue will be at the meeting as the committee’s competition lead to go through the changes and answer questions.
The registration meeting will also hold an open forum at the end where all will have the opportunity to express views on any matters that you would like to raise within Nottinghamshire Swimming.
If any decisions have to be made, we would ask that the representatives attending have the authority to do so on behalf of their Club. This includes things such as extra participation or withdrawal of teams.
There are no reserved places in the Gala Series and the registrations taken at the Registration Meeting takes precedence. Spare places, if any, will be allocated to the clubs who do not attend.
As it has proved more efficient, we would like you to pay the Treasurer the fees due at the meeting. Cheques made payable to Notts A.S.A. Card payments will also be accepted (signal dependant).
- Nottinghamshire Affiliated Club £25/Team/Gala
- Non-Nottinghamshire Affiliated Clubs£35/Team/Gala
- A fine of £50 is charged per gala for any team cancelling or not attending
All Clubs will need to pay an additional £25 license fee for the year 2024. This can be paid at the registration meeting and Notts ASA will then forward to the Licensing Officer on your behalf. This is a one off cost each year per club (not team). This will cover you for all level 4 meets for the year. If you have already paid, please speak to us first so we can verify and not charge you for this.
The selection of nominees to serve on the Swimming Gala Series Management Committee for 2024 will take place at this meeting and all the nominees must be members of their Club. It is essential that we have a good representation from the Clubs.
It is with great sadness that we have to inform you of the passing of “Sir” Allen Urch MBE.
Allen was a very familiar face around the poolsides of Nottinghamshire until recent years and also a long standing coach at Sutton Swimming Club in excess of 60 years.
Allen has been missed from poolside in recent years after he took a well earned retirement. Sadly Allen passed away on Sunday and his family have asked us to share this sad news with everyone.
Our thoughts are with his family at this very sad time.
Allen’s funeral will be held at Mansfield Crematorium on Friday 18th August at 13:15
Rest up now Sir Allen
We have now scheduled around 30 courses and had around 200 officials from Nottinghamshire attend the rules update course for 2023. For any official in Nottinghamshire that has still not completed this course, please can you email David Fortescue on firstname.lastname@example.org who will then try and arrange a suitable time to go over the course with you.
This is a mandatory course for all Officials in the UK.

Katy Cutler will lead the women’s side with Rose Younger as assistant coach and Victoria Dickens as their team manager.
It’s a team that contains a mixture of youth and experience and includes a number of players that took part in the U19 European Championships in 2022.
It also gives the opportunity to some of the younger members of the squad to gain some high-level match experience ahead of the U17 European Championships in August.
