Open Meets - are licensed events run by swimming clubs and open to anyone to enter. They are a good way of getting updated times or times for events you have not tried before. At Cranleigh's open meets and some selected other opens (i.e. Godalming & the Lis Hartley Open) we will have coaches poolside, but there are plenty of other competitions locally you can enter if you want to do it on your own.
Swim England compile all the licensed meets and you can search here for other events on their website.
*Due to the current situation with COVID-19 outbreak, it is unlikely that any events will go ahead until at least June 2020.
