The new club kit is now available to order! See order form attached.

The first ordering window deadline is Mar 3rd.  This is so that swimmers going to Regionals and swimmers competing in 'Peanuts' will have their kit in time.  There will be other ordering opportunities later in the year.  

This new kit will replace all older versions of the Club Polo shirt and T-Bag Shirt.  There are sample sizes available to try on at Woodside.  

It would be great if all swimmers can purchase the Club Polo Shirt, so they clearly represent Watford Swimming Club at League Fixtures, Galas and other competitions.  The other items available are less important.  

The order form needs to be completed with the swimmer's name, sizes circled and a cheque completed and attached - payable to Watford Swimming Club.  

The forms can be handed into any member of the committee before Mar 3rd.  This date is not flexible for the first round of ordering.
