Cancellation of Newquay Cormorants Open Gala – 22nd March 2020

In view of the new guidance emerging from the Government – namely avoiding social contact and unnecessary travel – and the news that Swim England have cancelled all competitions organised by the national governing body between now and May (https://www.swimming.org/swimengland/events-cancelled-coronavirus/) we have no option but to cancel Newquay Open on Sunday 22nd March.

Whilst we are deeply saddened to have to take this course of action the safety of swimmers, spectators, officials and pool staff has to take priority in these unchartered times. We will be looking to rearrange our gala later in the year as and when it becomes feasible. We thank you for supporting our open meet and hope to see you later in the year. It will be our intention, subject to licencing approval, to give preference to those swimmers who entered our March gala at the re-arranged event.

We will of course refund clubs the entry fees that have been paid – to aid this please can you confirm bank details that repayment needs to be made

All the best for the time ahead
