Congratulations to all our swimmers who participated in the new Bonfire Gala at a new venue!
This was the first of two teaching galas this season aimed at Proud, O’Connor and Guy Squads. We invited Bognor Swimming Club to join us for the first time, which proved a great success.
We got to try out the new 6 x 25m pool at Windlesham School – a lovely facility, great for this gala. Just a bit pushed for spectator space! As usual a number of experienced swimmers helped to run the gala and did an excellent job.
38 Littlehampton Swimmers aged 5-12 took part, along with 14 from Bognor. Club Captain Abby Smith did some beautiful demos before each race so we could go over the rules. There were 25m races in all strokes, plus a 50m freestyle race.
Everyone swam at least one new Personal Best (PB), with almost every race being a PB! Fantastic!
Thank you to all our lovely helpers!
