Wilkinson Sword Gala

The Wilkinson Sword Gala is for many swimmers the first County Gala in which they have the opportunity to swim for their home club. Traditionally taking place early in the calendar year the Gala is always keenly anticipated and well contested. As age groups for the Gala start at 9 years old and ages are as at the last day of the year of competition it is a chance for younger club swimmers to take part. NASA affiliated clubs compete for the prestigious Wilkinson Sword trophy and the Runners Up Shield. In previous years the Gala has been held early in January, however, after requests from Club Coaches and amendments to the ASA Calendar the date of the Gala has been moved to July. The order of events and  Gala rules may be downloaded from this page.

Congratulations to Northampton for retaining the Wilkinson Sword trophy for 2019 and to Wellingborough who also retain the runners up shield.

Results are available from this page as a pdf file, individual times will appear on the British Swimming Rankings list.
