Open galas are held around the country by swimming clubs. They have different levels of entry depending on the times required for swimming. Some have no time requirements (level 3), some have strict entry times (level 2 and level 1)
In the gala calendar 'invitation' usually means the galas are Association or County level and swimmers are invited to swim as part of the Association or County team, and are usually notified by letter
National Arena Swimming League
This is a National competition and has much stiffer competition. It is held in the autumn term. We swim against all other clubs in the North West and the winner from each region goes forward to a National Final. In our region there are three Divisions.
