Welsh Capital Meet proves successful yet again

achievementThe Welsh Capital Open Meet usually proves to be one our swimmers like and perform well at and this year was no exception.  23 swimmers made the journey to Cardiff and amassed 67 personal best times between them.  Medallists were Amelia Chappell (1 gold, 2 silver and 1 bronze), Callum Greenwood (1 gold, 2 silver and 2 bronze), George Leaman (1 silver, 1 bronze), Caitlin Mark (1 silver and 1 bronze) and Ben Penhale (1 silver and 1 bronze).  Clevedon came 7th in the league of visiting clubs which was a great result as was Callum getting 6th in the Top Boy and Amelia 21st in the Top Girl.  9 year old Caitlin Mark certainly lived up to her name and made her mark (!) with a full programme of 7 events, top 10 finishes in all 7, two medals and finishing 27th in the girls overall, in only her second appearance at a long course event.  A name that will be appearing many times in the future!  Well done Caitlin!

Full results are now posted on our RESULTS page.

We are in the ‘B’ final of the Arena League!

polls_Awesome_mc_HT_Smiley_5316_120461_answer_2_xlargeGood news!  The Arena team have made it into the ‘B’ Final of the Arena League!  The league table has just been confirmed and we are sitting nice and comfortably in 16th position which means a place in the B Final, but more so, that we are guaranteed to remain in Division One for another year!  This is fantastic news and all credit is due to the swimmers who have performed so well this year.  When you consider that there were 24 teams in the Division One this year (rather than 18 last year), that for each round we have been missing some key swimmers, and that this year we have many swimmers in the lower of the two year age bracket, then this really is a superb result for the club.  Well done to each and every swimmer and we look forward to celebrating with a final great performance on the 13 December!

The venues for the three finals have yet to be announced and we will let everyone know as soon as we do!  In the meantime you can see the full league table on the NATIONAL ARENA LEAGUE website.
