Stroud Masters Swim Sessions

Posted: 27 April 2021

Dear All,

There is finally some positive news and we are hoping that club sessions will be restarting from Monday 17th May. The following club sessions will be run from this date:

  • Monday mornings - 06:30-07:30 at Archway
  • Tuesday evenings - 18:30-20:00 at Archway
  • Wednesday mornings - 06:30-07:30 at Archway
  • Friday mornings - 07:30-09:00 at Stratford Park

Stratford Park are currently unable to offer the Sunday morning slot as they are not yet operating to their normal timetable. Once their timetable returns to normal the Stratford Park session will revert to Sunday mornings and the Friday session will move to Archway.

If you wish to attend any of the club sessions please ensure that you complete the Return to Swimming questionnaire link that has been e-mailed. You will not be able to swim unless you have completed the questionnaire online. Please read the questions carefully as not all of them can be answered by selecting no!

A further e-mail will be sent to confirm the start date for sessions once the government has given the go ahead for indoor adult group sports. We look forward to seeing you back in the pool.

Resumption of Archway

Posted: 8 September 2020

Hello Everyone

The early morning sessions (6.30 to 7.30am) on Monday and Wednesday will resume at Archway from 21st September. We plan to keep the current SPLC session on a Friday morning (7.30 to 9.00 am) going as it stands at the moment until we get our normal Sunday slot back when we'll revert to three morning sessions at Archway. The SPLC session will remain on a rota basis however the Archway sessions won't be rota based unless we get a sudden surge of interest.

The cost for the Archway sessions are £5 payable after the session into the Club account or you can set up an SO (for the morning sessions only) at the previous rates i.e.

  • 3 sessions / week = £45 monthly,
  • 2 sessions / week = £33 monthly,
  • 1 session / week = £17 monthly.

If you set an SO up can you let me know please.

As soon as I hear more about the resumption of sessions on a Tuesday evening I'll let you know.

If you have any queries please get in contact

Hello Everyone

Yesterday we unfortunately received notification from Archway School that they won't in fact be opening up the pool until September at the earliest. As soon as we have a definite date for restarting training we'll let everyone know. I'm sorry for any inconvenience this has caused you.

In the meantime could anyone who has yet to complete the Return to swimming declaration and the Health survey please return these to Richard Searle asap so everything is in order prior to restarting.

If you have any queries please don't hesitate to get in contact.
