Q: Can we take our own food info SAALC, the pool venue? 
Teams are permitted to bring in external food to the venue, but not in bulk, and not from commercial suppliers (e.g. pizza, Subway). Should teams wish to have a catered lunch from their hotel they may do so, but SAALC will not take delivery of it , store it , nor allow it to come into the venue in trays etc.

Alternatively SAALC have a host of catering options and can aid teams should they wish to cater with us. These in turn can be stored, supported until pickup is ready. Please note water, coffee and sports drinks are all on offer at SAALC.



Australian Teams wishing to book transport or freight for their equipment are recommended to use the SLSA Partner DHL.
