The Quays Swimming and Diving Complex is a superb venue for these meets. The 25m pool is a fast competition pool which has hosted the WISE International as well as numerous County, Disability and Schools events. The venue also boasts an excellent swim down facility (when available) and spectator gallery. To find out more about the pool please see: The Quays Swimming and Diving Complex.

2018 - 18th City of Southampton Open Meet - Licensed Level 3 - Saturday 3 March (3SE180218)

Regrettably we have taken the decision this morning to cancel the 18th City of Southampton Open Meet. Rest assured that we have not taken this decision lightly.

Given current conditions and the forecast for later today/early tomorrow we would concur with the advice that travel is not recommended. The last thing we want is for anyone to put their lives at risk to get to the Meet.

At this point in time we have no way of guaranteeing that The Quays will be open tomorrow or that they will have sufficient staff/ lifeguards to ensure the safety of swimmers, spectators, officials and volunteers.

We will of course follow this communication with details of how we intend to proceed in terms of rescheduling, refunds etc., but felt that in the first instance we should give you as much notice as possible of our decision to cancel.
