About the League
The League was established in 1984 with 4 teams competing in a round robin league. After 4 rounds the winner was declared.
The league was referred to as the Ross on Wye Junior League and in later years more teams joined the league with 12 being the regular new number of clubs that competed in more recent years. At this point a Final was created.
Clubs and swimmers have a lot to thank Trixie Pulsford for, Trixie has co-ordinated the league since it's creation in 1984. It is a fab competition that supports new and improving swimmers to give them an opportunity of safe and friendly competition.
PGL was added to the league name following a number of years being sponsored by PGL - a company that run outdoor activity centres. PGL have confirmed that they will continue to be the event sponsors for the 2022 League.
As we move into 2022's competition, having had 2 years without a Final, the league has been handed over to new co-ordinators following Trixie's decision to step down.
The competition operates with events having maximum times (speeding tickets) to ensure A grade swimmers (eg. swimmers with district times) are unable to compete.
See the League Programme for the Order of Events and Speeding Times.
Teams will compete in four rounds of swimming galas.
There will be four teams at each gala.
Each team will host one gala in one of the rounds.
Points are awarded to each team after each round.
Teams score 4 points for 1st, 3 points for 2nd, 2 points for 3rd and 1 point for 4th.
The top 8 teams will be invited to compete in the PGL Final.
Accumulative gala points for each team will also be recorded and will be used if teams have the same number of gala points.
