Team Update – 5th July 2019


Last weekend 16 of our swimmers competed in the County Development Meet at Crown Pools, this competition is the precursor to the county championships, it is for upcoming and developing swimmers, swimmers are not permitted to race in events that they have already achieved county qualifying times.

Our swimmers did fantastically well and I was proud to be poolside supporting the team as well as observing our performance whilst I was judging.


During the competition, many of our swimmers achieved personal targets. If you see our swimmers, please pass on your congratulations


It’s the club sprints tonight – the 50m events plus the 100m IM – there will also be a cake sale so bring some change ?
