Only one week to go to win a kid's pool party with Rebecca Adlington, plus five Speedo Sea Squad packs up for grabs!


Fancy winning a private pool party for your child and all their friends at your local pool? Kay and Rebecca Adlington have teamed up with Speedo to launch The S Factor competition, inviting kids to create a new member of the Sea Squad.

Enter, and you could win a fun-filled pool party hosted by the Speedo Sea Squad, and Rebecca Adlington, who'll share her personal top swimming tips and games. The winner will also get to see their name and Sea Squad character in lights on the Speedo website – splashtastic!

Plus, five lucky runners-up will win five Speedo Learn to Swim packs (worth over £60) which each contain a:

  • Speedo Hot Tot Suit
  • Sea Squad Poncho
  • Sea Squad Float Suit
  • Sea Squad Dive sticks
  • Sea Squad Goggles

How to enter

To be in with a chance of winning, all your child has to do is draw, paint or squiggle what they think the new Sea Squad character should look like, give him or her a fun name and come up with some likes, and dislikes. Be as creative as possible! 
(Some great examples already submitted to us below)

Then, simply send in your creation to the Speedo team as a digital photograph or scan to SpeedoSeaSquad@iris-worldwide.com, or post to: The S Factor, iris PR, 185 Park Street, London, SE1 9DY.

But hurry! Entries must be submitted to us by 29 November!
