SWAT Team Sprint 2024 Off to a Fast Start

The new SWAT Team Sprint 2024 has got off to a great start with the first two heats at Wessex and Wallingford shows which were a huge success. The entries have far exceeded expectations!

Courses were designed to be fast flowing with no weaves, a baton exchange and separate height categories.

Toni Davis said, ' Our main aim was simply to create a fun event that was accessible to as many people as possible and introduce the chaos of 'Team's to a new generation. As such we have clarified rules and particular situations as we have gone along. We could never have foreseen some of the more unusual queries we have had!

'We have therefore done an updated version of the rules to include all the queries we have had on our Facebook page as well as face to face. This can be found on the SWAT website as well as the FB page.

'Due to the high numbers that the event has attracted, we have had to make a change to the finals as we will never get through all the qualifying teams in one evening.

'We will, therefore, run the Finals during the day - still on Saturday, 3rd August 2024 but starting at 10:00 am. The top two teams from each height will then compete again in a Grand Final in the evening.

'I want to thank all the clubs who have supported us in setting up this event, and all the judges and competitors who have made it such a success. The atmosphere ringside is amazing and demonstrates exactly what agility is about - healthy competition, fun with friends and lots of laughter!'

Congratulations to all the qualifying teams so far.
