Take the plunge in fun swimming gala

Ilkeston’s Victoria Park Leisure Centre hosts a free-to-enter Family Swimming Gala this month featuring a whole range of fun races and relays.

The afternoon event takes place on Saturday 26 September between 3.30pm and 5pm and there will be prizes to be won.

As well as fun float and ball races, there will be 25m races in three swimming disciplines – front crawl, breast stroke and back stroke, all split into the age categories 7-8 years, 9-10 years and 11-16 years. Adding to the fun will be parent and child 50m relay races. Entry forms are available at the Leisure Centre on Manners Road.

Councillor Mike Wallis, Erewash Borough Council’s Lead Member for Culture and Leisure, says:

“We know this Gala will go swimmingly, so make a splash and grab yourself an entry form for a great afternoon of fun for all the family!
