Medal Hangers

Marlins are delighted to be collaborating with Edwards & White Sheet Metal Ltd to offer quality stainless steel medal hangers as a fund raiser. If your house is full of medals that you don’t know what to do with, this is a great way to display them and to celebrate your children’s (and your!) achievements.

The hangers are simply screwed into the wall and can hold dozens of medals.  The medal hangers can be produced specifically for Swimming or the wording can be changed to create a more generic hanger - such as ‘Winner’ or ‘My Medals’ – which will cover lots of activities.  Other suggestions are welcome!

The cost is just £20 per hanger with profits going to Maidenhead Marlins.

Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for further info or to place an order.  NB They make great Christmas gifts, too!

If you ordered one of these hangers at the Summer BBQ in July - they will be available for collection and payment at the Internal gala on Saturday 16th September 

ASA Membership - Important

Please note that if you wish to enter open meets (including ours) you must have Category 2 ASA membership. If you have recently moved into the competitive part of the club this is most likely to apply to you, but you should be able to check your current membership level here. If you are not certain that you have a Category 2 membership you should check.

Note that we may need to withdraw your entry from our meet if your swimmer only has a Category 1 ASA Membership.

In order to upgrade your membership you would need to fill in a category 2 form, which then needs to be sent to our ASA coordinator (contactable at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ), with a blank stamped envelope.
