This is a unique opportunity for club members to purchase a specially designed club polo shirt to commemorate the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
City of Glasgow is a Games Legacy Club operating within the city and as such a specially designed polo shirt has been produced with the Games Legacy logo on the sleeve.
The polo shirt is charcoal grey and purple which is very different from the usual team kit and is authorised club kit by the swim team committee.
This polo can be worn by club members at competitions just like the blue and white team kit.
The cost of the polo is :
£14 (child sizes) small, medium, large & X-Large
£17 (adult sizes) small, medium, large & X-Large
This polo is being produced by our kit suppliers therefore sizes are based on our normal team kit.

First order deadline 21st April 2014 - Approximate Delivery End May 2014
