Welcome to the competition page for the club. Here you will find the latest and most up-to-date information for future dates for competitions and club galas.
Given the current coronavirus (COVID-19) situation there is uncertainty that meets shown below will take place. We’ll keep this page updated so you can see the latest status we are aware of.
Each year we hold club championships. Long distance events (400m, 800m & 1500m) take place in late spring. All other events (200m and less) take place late autumn. The 2019 Championship results can be found by clicking this link RESULTS PAGE,
The club championships are not an ASA registered meet but are open to all swimmers. Medals are given to the top three boys and girls in each age group, these are awarded during our annual presentation evening.
The next BASC presentation evening will be held in early 2021.
