Coronavirus - ESC Swimning and Diving Sessions - CLUB CLOSURE


Dear Member / Parent /  Guardian,

It is with regret that we write to inform you that following an emergency meeting of the Swim England Board a statement has been released to all clubs on Tuesday 17th March 2020 regarding the Covid 19 virus. A part of this message reads:


Having further reviewed the guidance, it is Swim England’s interpretation that club activity falls into the ‘public gathering’ category and therefore it is strongly advising clubs to consider cancelling or postponing activity – including events – until the end of May”.


For the welfare of all swimmers, divers, coaches, teachers and parents it has been decided that ESC will be following the governing bodies recommendations and for the first time in the clubs long history will be ceasing all activity with immediate effect.


This decision has not been taken lightly but the decision has now been made after taking into consideration the recommendations in yesterdays announcement by Swim England.


We all face some tough times ahead and we would like to take this opportunity to wish you a safe few weeks until we can notify you of the commencement of ESC.

With regards to the Monthly Swim Fees we would suggest that you leave your Standing Orders in place for the time being and we will arrange for refunds to be paid once we know the overall period of closure.


In the meantime please stay safe.
