10th Battle on the Bay Swimming Carnival

We’re less than four weeks away from the 2019 Battle on the Bay Swimming Carnival on Saturday 9th March 2019!

It’s Drummoyne Swimming Club’s turn to host the Carnival again this year, which we initiated back in 2010 as a competition between neighbouring swimming clubs located around and nearby the Iron Cove Bay area. The Carnival has been a huge success and is now into its 10th year!

This year Drummoyne will be competing against Ashfield, Enfield and Leichhardt Swimming Clubs to determine the fastest Club on the Bay! Every swimmer will earn valuable points for their Club in the fight for the Battle on the Bay Trophy and the fastest individual swimmers will be awarded Age Group medals. The highlight of the Carnival is always the relay events, culminating in the thrilling 10x50m Freestyle relay between the fastest swimmers in each club.

The Carnival will start promptly at 3pm and finish at 7.30pm on Saturday 9th March 2019. Swim Club will be on as usual in the morning. We will have a BBQ and grand raffle prizes on offer at the Carnival.

Entries are $6 per person. We will be collecting entries and fees on Saturday mornings at the pool, so please bring along cash to pay.

You can choose to race Freestyle, Breaststroke, Backstroke and Butterfly. Under 6’s will race a 20m distance. 7-8 year olds will race 30m in all strokes but, for Freestyle, can choose to race 50m instead of 30m. Everyone else will race a 50m distance in each stroke.

Further information about this year’s Carnival can be found here. We look forward to all of our Club members joining in to help us win the ultimate prize – the Battle on the Bay Trophy!
