Atlantis Swimming Club hold three open meets each year. All are licensed with the ASA and therefore swimmer's times are officially registered with the A.S.A. and are valid for entry in to various levels of competition.
All of our open meets are held at the Pavilions-in-the-Park pool situated within Horsham Park and close to Horsham Railway Station. The pool is an 8-lane deck level pool with anti-wave lane ropes and Omega ARES-21 electronic timing system / score board.
All entries and results are managed by Atlantis S.C.'s "H-Tek Meet Manager" software.
