There will be both complete beginners and current record holders attending, and anyone is free to join in whatever their level. If you don’t feel like competing, come and watch or even help out for the experience. There are viewing galleries for spectators.

It is the 12th AIDA recognised event by the group over the past 5 years. This competition will be small, relaxed and informal, no large prizes, but will hold AIDA ranking status.

Here is a decent video of the pool

Enjoy :)

Helpers and viewers are also welcome to the event
I see with joy that the UK ladies are creeping up to international pool performance levels!
Thanks for reporting about it, Natalia would be very pleased to see more competition going at it.
I also hope that Sara Campbell aims and trains for a new CWT World Record. It would be cool to see a sort of direct head-to-head comp with Natalia for it.
