Cardiff have taken the decision to postpone the meet and plan to run the gala on 19/20 September at the Cardiff International Pool.

They plan to “freeze the gala entry” and hope all can make the new date to compete. However if any individual swimmers wish to withdraw, then they will refund. Please let Ruth or me know if you wish to withdraw.

As the club rightly say it is unprecedented times and the health and wellbeing of swimmers, families, coaches and staff is paramount.
