WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO ANOTHER GREAT MEET!


TEA PARTY 8 SWIM MEET

April 27, 2019 at the Zesiger Aquatic Center at MIT

Not Your Average Tea Party.


On Saturday, April 27, 2019, at the renowned Zesiger Aquatic Center on the campus of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), LANES will celebrate our 8th Tea Party Swim Meet.

Yes, that's right -- this is a celebration. Sure it's a swim meet but we're proud to have been part of the New England swimming community for nearly 25 years and counting. That's saying something, since we're the only team in New England purpose built to bring together the LGBT community and their friends -- and we're celebrating with yet another memorable Tea Party swim team.


We're looking forward to seeing you in pool on April 27th!
