Back to Dalry
The refurbished centre looks amazing and I'm sure everyone is just as excited as we are to get back in this beautiful 5 laned, 25-yard pool that Grove has called home for almost 120 years.
Aquatic Club Development Meet 2018
Grove has once again been invited along to the Aquatic Club Development Meet. The meet is held every year for the smaller clubs in Edinburgh and is a fantastic opportunity for our swimmers to compete in a relaxed environment. The meet is on the 30th September at Leith Academy and costs £2 per swimmer. Warm up will be 13.30 – 13.50 and the Sessions will last from 13.55 – 15.30. It would be great to see lots of our swimmers attending to experience what a swimming meet looks like and of course, supporting each other from poolside. The events are:
- 25m Fly, BC, Breast, Free (8/9 years)
- 25m Fly, 50m Back, Breast, Free (10/11 years)
- 50m Fly, Back, Breast, Free (12/13 & 14/15)
The organisers are happy for a few 16 year old swimmers to compete for those who are interested. Each swimmer may compete in a maximum of two individual events. Each club may enter up to 3 swimmers per age per event. As this is a novice introductory meet, preference will be given to swimmers with slower or no times. If you are interested then please bring along £2 to the next session at Forresters and get in touch with us here ASAP (We need provisional numbers by 7th September and confirmed by midday 19th September) with the following information:
- Swimmer full name
- Swimmer Date of Birth
- Events swimmer would like to participate in
Each club is expected to provide 2 volunteers (timekeepers (qualification preferred but not necessary)/ marshals) so if any parents/guardians are interested then please also include that in your reply.
If you have any questions please let us know.
Our new Home
The original plans for relocation have been changed and as a result, we will now be based at Forrester High School for the duration of the refurbishment. Everything you need to know is below and if you have any questions then feel free to get in touch with us here.
- The address of the school is 212 Broomhouse Rd, Edinburgh EH12 9AE
- There is parking available at the pool
- There is bus stops nearby for Lothian services 2, 22, 21 & 12
- When you arrive at the pool, ring the buzzer and an Edinburgh Leisure staff member will open the door for you. Failing this, knock on the big window and one of the committee will come to the rescue. The pool changing rooms are on the right as you go through the double doors
A full list of dates can be found on our website and will be kept updated throughout the closure.
On Thursday 24th May and Monday 28th May, join us for wholeclub time trials across all 4 strokes to identify areas improved since March and give swimmers a chance to beat their PB's
