Hemel at Watford open
Tuesday, 24 November 2015 10:39
Sixty-three swimmers from Hemel competed at the Watford Open meet at Woodside Leisure Centre last weekend entering over 300 events and achieving personal best times in nearly 50% of their swims; an impressive performance at a time when there are so many competitions in the schedule.  Nearly a third of our swims produced medal-winning performances with 35 first places and 66 second and thirds.  Alice Fender set new age group records in the 400 free and the 100, 200 and 400 IM and Jack Spence set new open records in the 100 and 200 IM.  There were fifteen new or improved summer regional times, with special mention of Seyi Bankole who achieved his first ever regional qualifying time in the 50 breast.  No fewer than 75 new or improved county championship qualifying times were set, with special mention of Natasha Acres and Henry Newbury-Kemp who both achieved their first qualifying times for that event, Natasha in the 100 breast and Henry in the 50 free and 100 breast.
Hemel triumph at Arena League
Sunday, 15 November 2015 12:40
Another magnificent performance saw Hemel win the second round of the National Arena League in a new aggregate best time for the Club, beating the previous record set in the first round by 30 seconds; to put this in context, before this season the next fastest time was set in 2006!  32 of the 50 swims were faster than in the first round, there were 12 Arena records (i.e. the fastest time by a Hemel swimmer or relay team in this competition) of which 6 were new Club Records, 17 individual personal best times, 13 new or improved county qualifying times and 9 new or improved regional qualifying times.  The team secured 12 first places and 16 second and thirds, but as with the first round it was the consistency and strength in depth of the squad that secured the win with all our swimmers finishing in the top six and no disqualifications. arena 2015 rd 2a

Thirty-five swimmers from the Club spent half term week in Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands on a swim camp.  The swimmers had two, two hour training sessions every day together with land training and the week culimated in a three-hour long challenge of 100 x 100m swims which was completed by everyone.  More pictures and a daily blog written by the swimmers can be found here.  Thanks to Liz and Tom Sherriff who organised the trip, to Terry Davies who stepped in at short notice as lead coach, and to Alan Coldwell, Janet Davies, Michael Holmes and Hayley McKenna who provided additional coaching and poolside support. swim camp 2015
