MESSAGE FROM SEVENOAKS SC
Please see the final details of the SOFS Open Gala 13/14th July. The programme with warm up information and results is attached plus the accepted entries. Please note that we will not be printing programmes for the event so please print this PDF or go to website where you can locate this under 7oaksopen.
I have also attached a location map for first time visitors. There is a new NCP car park located at the Leisure centre right at the top of the hill. Please note that there are a few events going on locally so give plenty of time to park even though there should be sufficient space.
We will be conducting a strict ‘small bag’ policy poolside as space will be limited, no large swim bags allowed. There are lockers located within the changing rooms which are lockable but valuables are left at your own risk.
This is a sign out gala – please remember this so we don’t have empty lanes.

No parents, unless team managers/coaches (with a poolside pass), are allowed poolside.
Please ensure all swimmers only bring a small drawstring bag poolside to ensure swimmers have as much space as possible. Lockers (chargeable) are available but are on a first come first served basis. All property is left at own risk. Swimmers must wear tops and footwear if they wish to enter the viewing gallery.
No large chairs are allowed poolside for swimmers, only coaches please. There are a limited number of benches available so please bring a yoga mat to sit on if you prefer.
We have a few swimmers with severe nut allergies, so please do not bring any items with such ingredients.
