Dear Members,

We have received further advice from Swim England last night https://www.swimming.org/swimengland/coronavirus-statement/

“Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced on Monday 16 March a range of measures to help combat the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Having further reviewed the guidance, it is Swim England’s interpretation that club activity falls into the ‘public gathering’ category and therefore it is strongly advising clubs to consider cancelling or postponing activity – including events – until the end of May.

Swim schools should also make an informed decision on future lessons based on the current information from the Government.”

In the interest of our members’ safety and in light of their advice, we have made the difficult decision to stop all training, learn to swim, land training and water polo session as of today.  We will be reviewing matters and keep you up dated as the weeks develop but as you will all no doubt understand we are in an unprecedented situation.

The Committee would like to thank you for your understanding in this matter and hope that you and your family keep safe.

Paignton Swimming Club Committee
