Hanworth & Feltham Lions Gala

Hanworth Leisure Centre (TW13 5EG). 25 Metres Pool

This gala organised by the Lions Club International does not have a regular place in the calendar and can take place at any time between January and April. We often recommend that new gala team members start with this event. The reason being that participants usually get more than one swim at this event. However, the downside of getting more swims is that this gala can take much longer to complete. Compared to other events, the official results from this event can, at times, be somewhat puzzling.
