“From strength to strength” was how Pete, head coach, described the performance of our swimmers at the Frome Meet at the weekend. 41 swimmers, 8 gold, 10 silver and 13 bronze medals. Too many personal best times to mention! Special mention to Ben Penhale who picked up gold for all his 5 events. There were many competing long course for the first time – Bethan Collins, Tara Cooke, Ruby Farrell, Toby Foster, Alfie Hocking, Addy Ledward, Caitlin Mark, Ellie Maule, Chloe Price, Kate Sergeant, Sam Streeter and Blayne Stanbrook. 9 yr old Blayne came away with top 4 finishes in all 7 events he entered in his age group – great swimming for his first visit to a long course pool! Another worthy of mention was Fran Coveney who had a massive programme of 14 events over the two days and produced personal best times in every single one. Bring it on!

The latest press release about the Mini Series Final is now available on our PRESS RELEASE page.
Pete has announced the team for the next round of the Arena league on the 8th November at Horfield. The details are on our COMPETITION page.
With the team lying precariously near the bottom three in the league at the moment, after a tough first round, we need everyone to be available if possible. There is no reason why Clevedon should not maintain their position in Division 1, but we do need to field our strongest team for the next two rounds. Please confirm your availability to Pete as soon as possible. Go Clevedon!

Fran Chambers, team manager for the Mini Series, has published her Team Manager Report for the final round of the Mini Series. With two very strong teams emerging over the series of galas, namely Soundwell and Severnside, Clevedon’s swimmers pulled together to produce some very strong performances on the final night, topped by Finlay Smith with two individual wins and Eva Farmery with one, to secure 3rd position and 3rd position overall. This was an outstanding result and a credit to the organisation and encouragement of Fran, her team of volunteers and of course our swimmers. Not forgetting the excellent support of all those parents. Keep an eye out for the press release next week! See our RESULTS page for times.
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.
