At the half way point of Club Champs with 650 swims completed there have been a staggering 400 personal bests and a 100 first time swims.  Congratulations to Holly Robinson and Joe Coldwell on achieving their first ever County qualifying times over the weekend and to Holly Carter, Megi Prince, Chloe Purkis, Chris Cox, Jacob Hutchings and Harrison Mills who achieved their first County Qualifying times for this season.  With two months of the County qualifying window still to go we have already exceeded both the number of qualifiers from 2014 and the number of events they have qualified to enter.

We are delighted to announce that the Club's new "Olympic-style" starting blocks have been installed and will be used for the first time in anger during the forthcoming Club Championships.  The adjustable raised back foot plate of the blocks (technically called the "OSB11" manufactured by Swiss Timing)  allows the swimmer to exert greater force when pushing off from the starting block, resulting in a faster initial speed into the water. osb11

Tunisian swim camp - thank you Tom!
Tuesday, 04 November 2014 00:00
A huge vote of thanks to Tom Sherriff who masterminded the highly successful 2014 swim camp in Tunisia over the autumn half term. It’s taken a year to plan and included organising a sponsored swim and bag packing to help fund the trip as well as arranging sponsorship for the coach to the airport and the special red camp hoodies that you’ll now see at training. Tom also had to battle with the availability of accommodation, pool time and flights for a whole range of options before eventually settleing on Tunisia, but all the feedback suggests that it was time very well spent.
