Rickmansworth Training September

Thursday, 14 August 2014 12:49

Due to essential maintenance at Rickmansworth Pool we have just been informed that the pool will not now be available for the first week back after the summer break.

We therefore propose that National and Regional Squads will swim the following sessions.

Monday 1st September - Habs - Both Squads - 19.00-21.00 (Reminder no morning swims until Monday 8 September)

Tuesday 2nd September - Woodside - Both Squads - 19.00 -2100 (additional lane has been secured)

Wednesday 3rd September - Woodside - Normal group swimming

Thursday 4th September – No Swimming at Rickmansworth

Friday 5th September - Woodside - Both Squads - 19.30 - 21.00 (additional lane has been secured)

Sunday 7th September - Luton - National Squad 10 .00 - 12.00 as per normal

Return to normal from Monday 8 September.

Apologies for the inconvenience this will cause which unfortunately is out of our control.


URGENT Rickmansworth Closure

Saturday, 09 August 2014 21:56

Due to some essential work on Rickmansworth School Pool, the Pool will remain closed during the first week of September, therefore we are not able to return until Monday 8th September 2014.

This will therefore be the start date of the Autumn term for all School of Swimming swimmers and we hope that we do not have to make any more adjustments.

Apologies for the inconvenience caused as this unfortunately is beyond our control.

Please note that if fees have already been paid, there will be a refund of one weeks fees.  If you have not yet paid, please deduct one week from your invoice.  Any queries please email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Squad training sessions are currently being addressed and provisions are currently being planned, squad swimmers will be notified shortly.





Watford's duo had an excellent start to the 2014 British Gas National Age Group Championships today.  Well done to Marcus Kemp & Oliver Taverner, both of whom set new long course personal best times in their respected events; 100m Backstroke and 200m Breastroke.

With more coming up over the next few days, we wish them continued success.

Commonwealth Success

Brilliant to see Katie Armitage representing Scotland today in Glasgow at the Commonwealth Games.  Setting personal best times in the heat and then going one better in the semi-finals.  Successfully proceeding through to the 100m Breastroke Final, which takes place tomorrow (28th July), ranked 7th in her first ever senior competition.

Katie a former member of Watford Swimming Club for a number of years has always shown great promise and we are all very excited to see her perform fantastically well on the centre stage.

We wish Katie all the very best success in the Final which is scheduled around 20.20hrs.

Fun in the Park!


The weather held up on Saturday, with what turned out to be a scorcher! 

Thank you to everyone that turned out and enjoyed a relaxing afternoon in the park.  With food and drink a plenty it was great to just chill out!

A great day was had by all with some relaxed team games, a perfect end to a busy season.

Our social team once again did us proud in organising this event.

Watch this space for the next social event coming up!
