What ever you are doing, we hope you all have a great weekend.
There will be an additional training session for the Improvers Squad on Saturday. The session will take place on Saturday 28th, 6:00 - 7:00pm at Chorley.
The recent training cancellations due to technical problems at All Seasons demonstrated how important it is that members receive emails the Club sends out. We are aware that some people are not always receiving them due to going into Spam or the Promotions tab.
We would like to encourage you to download the Swim Manager app and enable push notifications. For urgent messages we send out a Swim Manager Alert which will appear on your phone as a notification. You can also view previous messages within Swim Manager.
To make sure that Chorley Marlins emails reliably land in your inbox and don’t get junked, you can whitelist our email addresses. To whitelist an email address just means you add them to your approved senders list. This tells your email client that you know this sender and trust them, which will keep emails from Chorley Marlins at the top of your inbox and out of the junk folder.
Whitelisting is a quick, one-time-only task to add our email address to your address book or safe senders list. Usually, all you need to do is open an email message and verify the sender can be trusted.
These are the main email addresses we use:
Here are simple instructions on how to ensure that future emails get delivered straight to the inbox, in some of the most popular email clients:
How to Whitelist an Email in Gmail
If you’re using Gmail as your email provider, it’s easy to set things up so that a given sender is whitelisted for all future communications. The Gmail whitelist process can be done quickly through the web client:
Whitelisting in Gmail mobile app
How to Whitelist an Email in Outlook
Whitelisting a domain or specific email address in Outlook.com is just as easy and works by adding the address or domain in question to a group called “safe senders”. An address that has been added to safe senders will be pushed to your inbox regardless of your spam filters. To add an address or domain to safe senders:
Whitelisting in Outlook mobile app
How to Whitelist an Email in Yahoo Mail
If you want to move a sender or domain name to your whitelist Yahoo Mail, the process is even easier than it is in the other service providers mentioned above.
As long as you have already received at least one message from the address in question, all you have to do is highlight that message in the Bulk folder and mark it as Not Spam. Once you have identified a single message from a given sender, the Yahoo Mail spam filters will automatically allow future messages from the same address into your inbox.
On the other hand, if the person you’re attempting to whitelist hasn’t yet sent you a message, you’ll need to go through the following steps to whitelist the address:
Whitelisting in Yahoo Mail mobile app
How to Whitelist an Email Address in AOL
Many people looking for email whitelisting instructions for AOL are confused by the fact that AOL doesn’t have a traditional email whitelist. Instead, it considers all mail addresses a user has in his or her address book to be trustworthy. This means that the contact list in AOL essentially serves the same purpose as Gmail whitelist and Outlook whitelist.
Here are step-by-step instructions for whitelisting an email address in AOL:
There will be an additional training session for members of the Intermediates Squad this Saturday, 21st. Training will be at Chorley 6:00 - 7:00pm.
Attached is a list of Marlins kit and swimwear orders received.
Please be careful with the sizing as the kit is made to order so is not returnable. You can see the size guides here.
Hopefully I haven't missed any orders or entered any details incorrectly.
For some items we haven't reached the larger discounts quantity so there is a slight price increase, usually under 50p, but still significantly cheaper than the future single item price. Any problem let me know.

The Club has been invited to take part in a Micro League fixture on Sunday as there is a spare lane. This gives the club the opportunity to give some more of our swimmers the experience of swimming in team events. The gala is in addition to our scheduled Micro League fixtures so we will not be awarded any points and does not affect our league position.
Taking place on Sunday 22nd May at Padiham Leisure Centre BB12 8ED, warm up is 5:00pm. Please confirm availability in the comments section.
