Barracudas County Qualifier 18th/19th Septemeber – Spectator Update

The Club has been receiving a lot of communication about spectator tickets for our gala next weekend. We have been unable to sell tickets in advance given the uncertainty of the impact of Covid and potential restrictions. At present, the Club is expecting to be able to accommodate spectators at the venue next weekend although you will appreciate that Covid remains a fluid situation.

Spectator tickets will be issued on a first come first served basis subject to the maximum seated venue capacity of 240. This is likely to mean in view of the number of swimmers per session (especially on the Saturday) that we cannot guarantee a seat to all that attend and we may be required to impose a restriction on the maximum number of tickets issued per family.

Tickets will also only be issued per session (afternoon & evening of each day). There will be no all day tickets available in order to accommodate full cleaning of the spectator area, but this will not affect the original discounted price offered to those spectators who attend both sessions on the production of a wristband from the earlier session of that same day. We would ask that you communicate this to your members and ask that they consider limiting the number of potential spectators attending to avoid any disappointment on the day.

We appreciate that everyone is really keen to see swimmers back in the pool and we are fortunate to be able to offer the opportunity in these post Covid times but would appreciate everyone’s assistance in ensuring that this can happen.
