Minster Meet

Doncaster Dartes are proud to present their 8th annual B/C Grade Minster Meet. This meet is expected to be over-subscribed so enter early to avoid disappointment.

Headline Meet for April 2016 - Minster Meet


We take meet branding seriously. You'll definitely know you've been to a Dartes Meet Kingston upon Hull's Coach Graham Martin receives top club The popularity of our premier headline meet, the Minster Meet, goes from strength to strength. Each year we receive rave reviews for the fun atmosphere and our emphasis on awarding top notch trophies.

It's hard work to continually raise the standard year on year, but our Meet Management Team has proved up to the task so far. In its first year (2008), the Minster Meet proved a massive success selling out weeks before the deadline date. The following years we built on that reputation and despite the difficult economic times the meet was still a sell-out! We expect nothing less in 2016, so please get your entries in fast to avoid disappointment.

2016 Meet Details

Tombola - Dartes Style. More prizes than you can shake a stick at The details are now finalised. Download the full information pack below, or just the entry forms (smaller download).


Just some of the prizes on offer in 2009 edition of Minster Meet Guarding the Silverware: Head Coach Wallace keeps an eye on the minor prizes and speeding tickets We spend a lot of time, money, and effort making sure our meets are a cut above the rest, and the prizes on offer reflect that. The high quality trophies presented to competitors are always a hit. We continue receiving compliments and thank you messages from swimmers and parents for most of the rest of the year.

For 2016 you can expect more of the same. Our Meet Management Team have been hunting through trophy catalogues for months to find a selection of distinctive prizes for our meets, just to give you something a little special.

A Fabulous Meet -- But Don't Take Our Word For It!

After all the hard work of putting on such a headline meet, it's nice to know those popping along each year appreciate it. Here's a selection of what they've had to say about our meets in recent years.

Just a quick note to say thanks for yet another excellent meet yesterday.

You guys are certainly setting the standard.

Please pass on my thanks on behalf of everyone who attended / competed from Team Jorvik to the Doncaster Dartes "Team"

Kind Regards,

Graeme Taylor -- Team Jorvik

Dear Cris, thank you for a great meet yesterday. Our swimmers came away with lots of trophies rather than medals and these are different so they appreciate them more. A busy meet that worked very well changing the 10yr girls to the afternoon.

Getting the £2.00 back for returning the pass is a great idea.


I just wanted to say a big thank you on behalf of Pocklington Dolphins. The gala was very well organised and enjoyable. Our swimmers came away with some trophies, medals and speeding tickets ... (which they were proud of their speeding tickets).

Thank you once again will see you at the Adwick gala.

On behalf of Dronfield Dolphins I should like to congratulate Doncaster Dartes on yet another well run gala. All our swimmers thoroughly enjoyed themselves, for some it was their (and their parents) very first open event and your gala has inspired them to enter more.

Thanks once again, I am certain you will see our swimmers at the Halloween meet.

And Finally ...

The Doncaster DARTES Minster Meet promoter would like to thank the wonderful committee and all the volunteers and sponsors who gave their support and made the "Minster Meet" so successful. Special thanks go out to all the volunteers from other clubs who gave up their day to help DARTES deliver another significant gala. I am proud to be associated with a club that attracts such generosity.

Many thanks,
