Bill and Monica Griffin Gala

Copeland ASC started this competition in the early 1990’s in recognition of the contribution of Bill and Monica Griffin (both now deceased) to competitive swimming – not only in the Whitehaven/Egremont area but also in Cumbria and nationally. The gala is usually held in the early part oof each year and was designed as a ‘sprint’ gala specifically to encourage young swimmers and to give them experience of a ‘quality’ competition; it is now a popular fixture in the Cumbrian swimming calendar.
