This gala was held at Easton Leisure Centre and was the 2nd of three rounds of this series of galas. There are the same six teams in each of the rounds and the total number of points for the three rounds decides the final order of the teams. The final round is on Saturday 13th December at Easton.

This round was a similar format to usual with two small changes. The first change was the first two events were the Girls and Boys 13/U 100IM and secondly the relay legs for the 13/U age group were all 50m. Bristol Henleaze were not only hosting this gala but as in the last round were involved with two other galas on the day which meant we fielded a team of 37 swimmers some of whom had never competed in a gala for our Club before.

The age groups were 9/U, 11/U 13U and Open. Our swimmers were restricted to 2 individual swims and relays in their own age group but they could swim up in higher age groups. The last event was special 8x25m freestyle relay. It was an 8 leg cannon with a boy and girl from each age group swimming.

We had 13 first places and 12 second places in this 53 event gala. There was a total of 18 PBs in the individual events.
