Welcome to Team Luton

Team Luton Swimming Club is a well-established, friendly and highly successful competitive swimming club based at Inspire: Luton Sports Village.

We encourage everyone starting from their very first local swim meet through to our Performance swimmers competing at Regional and National level.  With four English National champions in 2018 ranging from ages 18 to 62 years, the Club prides itself on providing a supportive club environment that enables all swimmers, regardless of age, to reach their full competitive potential. As of December 2018, 18 of our current members held over 100 Beds County long course and short course records on distances ranging from 50m to 1,500m.

2019 April Long Course Open Meet 20/21 April 2019. 1ER190182

22 April 2019. Please find the result files for our Open Meet at the weekend. Congratulations to all of the swimmers

 

 

24 March 2019. Entries for this meet are now CLOSED. Accepted / rejected entries have been posted together with reserve lists for long distance events.

We are pleased that we have now been able to process all of the entries . Unfortunately we were over-subscribed and so have had to reject a number of  swimmers to ensure that we stay within the maximum daily time allowance for a gala. We know that this will disappoint those swimmers we have rejected and hope that they can quickly find another gala to help them achieve their goals for this part of the season.

Below we have attached the initial accepted and rejected entries for the meet, together with a processing statement which outlines the methodology we used. Please check these carefully – a reminder that  our email address for any queries is galas@teamluton.com.

We also include the Schedule of events which now sets out the start times for the afternoon and evening sessions.

During the week we will add the reserve lists for the 800m and 1500m events.
