Dee Reynolds Open Meet 2022

Entries for our Open Meet on 19th and 20th March 2022 open soon. The meet comprises of 50m, 100m and 200m events, with finals for the 100m Freestyle event.

Further details are available here.


Officials needed!

As a swimming club we need lots of volunteers throughout the club, but we need committed support in one area in particular: Officials. We need officials for all team galas and we are expected to provide officials for Open Meets we attend as well.

The more officials we have the better, we can then rotate the responsibility more fairly. Being an official also has big advantages – you get in for free, get refreshments and often a meal at Open Meets and you’re that much closer to the action. Please get involved – you can get more information here!


Annual General Meeting

The AGM is to be held virtually on Thursday 17th June 2021 at 8pm.

Nominations are invited for Officers of Nuneaton and Bedworth Swimming Club. All nominations must be proposed & seconded by members of NBSC. Please see the form below for details of how to nominate and for voting details.

Nomination forms will be removed from the pool (Pingles) on Tuesday 1st June (as Monday is a bank holiday and there will be no training).

All adult paid up members are entitled to vote or stand for one of elected committee positions: Chairman, Secretary, Treasurer & 10 committee positions as detailed on the form.

All persons participating must have been a member as of 18th May 2021 – 30 days prior to the AGM in line with the Constitution.


Lockdown :(

Following the government’s recent announcement about further national lockdown measures being put in place, the club and learn to swim sessions will be suspended for 4 weeks from Thursday 5th November through to 2nd December inclusive.

We know this is disappointing for everyone, particularly our swimmers who have been showing real resilience, dedication and determination in their return to training. However, we will be back and stronger than ever when we return in December, so please keep an eye out for our regular updates.

Meanwhile we hope you all stay safe and keep up your home fitness routines over the next month so you are ready to return. Our coaches will be providing you with tips and hints, including home programmes, basic fitness sessions, and hopefully running some Zoom sessions for our senior squad swimmers. So keep up the good work and keep your eyes open for these over the coming days and weeks.

Parents: please do not cancel your direct debit with your bank. We will not call for a payment until training returns and have taken into account November’s payment which has just been processed. Any amounts owing for this period will be credited when we return to the pool in December.

‘Til then, stay safe!

Chris Atkins
NBSC Chairman

Hi AllMany thanks for your support and understanding over the last few months, we know this has been a difficult time for everyone and like you we can’t wait to be back in the water.A lot of work has been involved in getting to this stage so please read all the enclosed information carefully and sign & return the forms requested. Unless we have these returned you/your child will not be allowed to train. Firstly a few important notes:Please do not arrive at the pool more than 10 mins prior to the start of your session, no late admittance will be permitted so please ensure you are there on time.

  • Please watch the video relevant to the pool you are training at this shows the way in & out.Both have been uploaded to facebook.
  • There are hand sanitisers at the entrance to both buildings please ensure you use them on your way in.
  • Please do not congegrate in the public areas, when you get the centre, make your way through to the poolside.
  • When swimmers get to poolside, outside shoes must be removed – at this point they will be checked in, if health forms have not been returned by email then they need to be handed in at this point to the Covid Liaison person who will also take their temperature- they will be checked in and given their training lane bubble. They must remain in this bubble & lane for every training session.
  • Swimmers must arrive at the Pool Beach Ready,
  • At Pingles bags should be put on the wall, balcony step or window ledge please leave space in between your bag and the next one to maintain social distancing.
  • At Bedworth the 1st row of seating is for bag drop only.
  • At both pools the showers are not in use, also swimmers should towel dry and put their outerwear on before they leave poolside as we will not be using the changing rooms.
  • Swimmers must adhere to all social distancing protocol & any instructions given whilst in the pool and in the building. The Coach/Covid Lead has the authority to remove them from the session if they don’t.
  • The balcony has significantly reduced capacity therefore only parents whose child is 10/under will be allowed on the balcony and this is restricted to 1 parent per family. At Pingles the 1st row of seating is not in use and then it is every other row (the blue seats) please only use the seats with green markings on, at Bedworth only the back row of seating is usable. Parents of children between the ages of 10-12 should drop their children a the door to the pool and then wait in the car park for the duration of the session.

Return to Training

Apologies this update is quite late but we have been finalising our training plan which has taken a while, due to changes to the proposed timetable by Everyone Active.

We now have a temporary timetable, which will be reviewed regularly and when guidelines etc change, we will start to move back to our usual timetable.

Below is how the squads & Learn to Swim will return to Pingles & Bedworth – more information will be sent out in group emails to each squad and will include a health survey which needs to be returned before your child will be allowed back in the water.

Many thanks


Update from Committee

Dear Members

 On behalf of the committee we hope that you are all keeping safe & well during these strange times. We held a virtual committee meeting last night thanks to the powers of technology and wanted to update you all on a few things: AGM – As you may be aware this was due to be held on 4th June – given the current situation we feel it best that we postpone the AGM until early October. The committee have all agreed to remain in post until then – I hope you will agree that this is the best way forward, as even if we could hold a virtual AGM, nominating and seconding for posts and voting would not be easy. The committee also felt that it would not be the right time to handover should there be changes in personnel for any roles and felt that stability is what is needed currently.We have spoken with other clubs and Swim England regarding postponing an AGM and they have advised that given the extenuating circumstances this is permissible. Link to Swim England advice pages: June Open Meet – The committee have made the decision that cancelling the June open meet would be the right thing to do in the current climate. Swim England have cancelled all National meets until end August currently and even if we are allowed back to train the swimmers would not be race fit and we don’t want to put extra pressure on them after an enforced break from training.

 March Fees – As you are aware the treasurer sent a note out to all members regarding fees, if you pay by direct debit we will make sure that once Aprils direct debit has been taken (for March training fees) then we will not request anymore until we are back training. (If we are back in June then it will be July when a payment is taken). If you pay by standing order then you need to cancel your standing order and restart it once we are back training Once we know when we are back training we will confirm how much the fees for that month will be, this will take into account a 50% credit for March as we were unable to train for the whole month.

 If you have any queries or concerns re any of the above then please contact me

 Hayley (Chair NBSC)
