Battle on the Bay Carnival – Sat 22 Feb 20

Only three more weeks to train up for the 2020 Battle on the Bay – a fun swimming carnival between Drummoyne and our neighbouring swim clubs – to be held at 3pm on Saturday 22nd February 2020 at Leichhardt Pool!

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. The fastest individual swimmers will be awarded Age Group medals.

The relay events are always a highlight, particularly the thrilling 10x50m Freestyle relay between the fastest swimmers in each club!

Swim Club will be on as usual at 7.30am that morning and the Carnival will start promptly at 3pm on Saturday 22nd February 2020, finishing at 7.30pm.

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.
  • All other age groups will race a 50m distance in each stroke.


Drummoyne Swimming Club initiated the Battle on the Bay 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 11th year!

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