2020 PGL League Fixtures

The PGL Ross League is essentially a ‘B’ team league, where we swim as many swimmers who do not get the opportunity to either swim in the Nuneaton League, or only swim in relays in the Nuneaton League. Each race has a time limit on it, any swimmer going faster than the given time receives a ‘Speeding Ticket’.

It also helps us to gain times and other information i.e. strokes, turns and starts which is useful when planning training and also helps us to monitor the swimmers progress.
