Sandwell Information

Parking

We have been advised by the centre Duty Manager that car parking at the Sandwell Aquatics Centre this weekend for the Worcester County Championships will be reserved for Officials, Volunteers, Coaches and Team Managers. Alternative parking for all other spectators will be provided at the Harry Mitchell Leisure Centre, Broomfield, B67 7DH (0.7 miles away - 15 mins walk). 

 

Parents will be able to drop off/pick up at the front of the Sandwell Aquatics Centre building. 

 

Please see attached map of directions to the Harry Mitchell Centre and also of surrounding roads where there is a possibility of street parking available on some local side roads. Manor Road has pedestrian access to the rear of the Sandwell Aquatics Centre.

 

 

A parking pass will be provided to coaches/officials/team managers and County volunteers. To help the car park wardens, please show this pass to them on arrival and let them know your role for the weekend and the club you are representing. 

 

Chairs

Benches are available at the centre, however swimmers are encouraged to bring camping chairs for poolside if they have them. 

 

Refreshments

The café at the centre was not scheduled to open until the middle of February, however they are hoping to be able to open for the first time over the weekend - please be patient with this. 

We are also pleased to announce that Happy Bakes will have a stall in the foyer of the centre, selling cakes/brownies etc, and samosas will be available to purchase from the spectator desk. 

There is an abundance of local shops on Londonderry Road. 

 

Access to the building

Swimmers should enter through the main reception and make their way to poolside via the Changing Village. Please note there is no parental access to the pool and parents are not allowed into the Changing Village

 

Officials, Volunteers, Coaches and Team Managers are encouraged to use the side entrance to the building (car park side) rather than going via the Changing Village.
