To allow the open gala entry system to run as smoothly as possible, please can you note the following:

  • The club Gala Secretary team for Level 1, 2, 3 & 4 licensed events is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

  • If entries are rejected, refunds will be applied through the Gala Refund Policy. Please contact the gala secretary to enquire re your 'credit'.
  • For galas displayed on the Open Gala website page, it is preferred that entries are made through the club, rather than individually.

 

Also, please note the following Open Gala entry requirements:

  • Entries will only be accepted if submitted by the club closing date with payment enclosed. Where payment is not required by the time of entry this will be indicated.
  • We accept entries via our Online Open Gala Entry and Payment Form or by hard-copy Open Gala Entry Form. These entry methods must always be used for all events unless otherwise stated.  We do not accept entries via email or SMS text.
  • Click here to download the entry form
  • If you wish to make a paper entry you must liaise with the Open Gala Secretary by email in advance, the same cut off rules will apply, payment and entry to be received before the dead line.
  • For members using the hard-copy Open Gala Entry Form, cheques are the preferred method of payment, made payable to Sevenoaks SC unless otherwise stated.
  • If two separate opens are being entered at the same time, separate cheques are required. 
  • Siblings may have joint cheques for the same open.
  • Please write name of open and swimmer/s name on back of cheque/s.
  • Swimmers in Bronze and Silver squads should always look to enter 200 freestyle, 200 in their form stroke (butterfly, backstroke or breaststroke) and an I.M. in any Open Meets. This prepares them for the Bagcat events in the Kents and it is important for swimmers in these squads to get used to racing these distances.

Many thanks for your co-operation.
