Mark Symonds has announced that the next badge and certificate sale will be on Tuesday 25th, Thursday 27th and Friday 29th November, at Strode, between 6.45 and 7.45pm. A great way to acknowledge your swimmers progress and achievements. For more information about what badges and certificates you can order, then see our BADGES page. There are also up to date spreadsheets and lists by the changing rooms. We thank Mark for the hard work he does in putting these statistics together.
If you want your swimmer to be motivated – make sure they see Mark on one of these nights – he’s not just our Badge Man, he’s Mr Motivator too!
Last night saw the continuation of some excellent swimming within our Club Champs distance events. The standard of swimming this year has really raised the bar and last night was no exception with numerous personal best times and some new Championship Bests too. Thanks to the swimmers and parents for their patience during our slight technical issue! Thanks as always to our great team of helpers and officials.
Full results are on the CLUB CHAMPS page, and the Championship Best Times have all been updated on our RECORDS page.
Our Mini Series swimmers travelled to Kingswood on Saturday for the final round of the Series. Full results are to follow but a spirited and determined performance saw the team fight for 3rd on the night and achieve 3rd place overall in the series for this year. Congratulations to Fran Chambers and her team of swimmers and volunteers!
Meanwhile 28 swimmers travelled over the channel to Newport for the Greater Gwent Open Meet for two busy days of competition. Almost 100 pbs were set, and Amelia Chappell, Callum Greenwood, Sam Hodge, George Leaman, Ella Jenkins, Isobel Major, Ben Penhale and Finlay Smith stormed to 20 gold, 10 silver and 9 bronze medal positions between them. Special mention to Callum for swimming best times in all 10 events he entered (not easy at 17 yrs old!) and Francesca Coveney who had a heavy programme of 12 events, and swam personal bests in all bar one. Also to George and Callum for qualifying for the exciting Skins event, with Callum making it through to the penultimate round against, amongst others, Ieuan Lloyd, Olympic swimmer from 2012 who broke a Welsh National Record during the meet.
A well run, friendly meet, this is definitely one to aim to qualify for for next year!
Information regarding Club Championships day itself – 23rd November at Hutton Moor – is now on our CLUB CHAMPS page. Please make sure your entries are in by Monday 10th November. This is slightly later than in the original conditions.
We look forward to seeing as many there as possible and, as always, invite offers of help on the day. There is the facility to offer your help either as a general helper or as an official, on the entry form. Thanks!
There was some excellent swimming on display at the Club Champs 200 IM. There were numerous new personal best times, as well as Championship Best Times (well done to Clara Finch (8), Amelia Chappell (14), Blayne Stanbrook (9), Ben Penhale (11), George Leaman (15) and Callum Greenwood (17 & Open)). An extra special mention to 8 yr old Malia Smith who showed great determination and calmness to continue with the race unflustered despite her goggles coming off during the backstroke!
The results and new records are now on the Club Champs page.
