This gala was held at Easton Leisure Centre and was the Final Round of the three the rounds of this series of galas. This year there were the same five teams in each of the rounds.

 The total gala points of the three rounds decide the final order of the teams. Four   of the teams went into the final round all on 9 gala points each after the first two rounds. So if one of these four wins this final they will be the overall winner of the    series and take home the UBSC Cup.

This round was a special Christmas Cracker with 16 individual races, 16 2x25m relays and 16 4x25m fun relays. There two types of fun relay firstly a front paddle relay and secondly a tee-shirt relay. Bristol Henleaze was involved with two other galas on the day which meant we fielded a team of 33 swimmers some of whom had never competed in a gala for our Club before.

The age groups were 10/U, 12/U 14U and Open. The last event was special 16x25m freestyle relay. It was a 16 leg cannon with two boys and two girls from each age group swimming.
