StraggTri Overview


Roof repairs have necessitated the Kingfisher pool being drained and will remain closed throughout January. 

No swim sessions in January - but swimming on Wednesday evenings at New Malden Pool 7pm will be held and a visit to the Stratford pool on Sunday 12th January is being arranged.  Please contact Barbara if you need more information - or see the Whats App group. 

Here are the January coaching and swim session documents which you can download and print off for your own training sessions.
