Congratulations to Hammerheads who won the 2016 Sharks Gala.  Lying third after eight races they gradually pulled back the defecit helped by a string of four consecutive wins to be second after sixteen, and then pulled away to a relatively comfortable lead before the final 25 x 25 squadron where even finishing fourth didn't affect the final result.  Congratulations to Tilly Beckwith, Kieran Brevern, Mila Brooke, Mabel sharks 2016 - hammerheads

Fourty-three swimmers attended the Luton Development meet on Sunday as a last-chance County qualifier event.  There were almost 100 PBs of which half were either first time or improved County Consideration times and 7 regional qualifying times were set.  One Club age group record was set alongside 21 golds, 20 silvers and 33 bronzes in a highly succesful day of competition for Hemel swimmers.

Arena 2016 - rd 3
Monday, 12 December 2016 09:09
What a night in East London that was!  Half way through the competition Hemel lay joint second, 17 points behind first, but with only 18 points separating second from sixth it was nail-biting stuff.  In the end it was Hemel that held its nerve to finish a comfortable second, a place above our pre-competition seeding, and only 9 points behind first.  arena 2016 rd3
The team has improved in each of the three rounds of this year's competition, for which credit must go to the coaching team as well as the swimmers.  This round was the third fastest aggregate time posted by a Hemel team in the competition ever, beating a time set by the record-breaking 2015 team. There were four first places but the result was more a tribute to consistency with 16 second and third places. There were no fewer than 23 individual or relay lead leg PB's, a number of them significant improvements, which is a remarkable achievement coming toward the end of a hectic short-course season.  There were ten new or improved Regional QTs, one Club open record, 4 Club age group records and three Club competition records. Overall it was a huge step-up in effort with non-swimmers raising the roof in support of their team.

Club Champs - 400IM
Wednesday, 07 December 2016 11:54
The final round of this year's Club Champs concluded with the 400 IM and once again the value of running the event jointly with Watford SC was clear with a number of fantastic races helping swimmers achieve 22 new personal bests alongside 18 first time swims.  Alice Fender set a new open Club record, Sam Gaines a new age group record, and Kevin McKenna became the first Hemel male swimmer aged 50 or over to swim the event, just beating his target time.  Both Sam and Alice also set Summer Regional times along with Georgia Purkis and Mattias Morse.
