2017 county qualifier

Share Good News

Our first home open meet of the season was a great success!

Great swimming from everyone last weekend! We had 43 swimmers compete in 180 races, with 101 new PBs swum. There were 25 new Winter County Qualifying Times achieved, with a further 34 swum where swimmers already had them, many of these were improved times.

Special congratulations to Isabel Charnock, Alfie Davis and Ellen Sanger who all achieved their first ever county qualifying time!

Also special mention must go to our awesome fly swimmers in the final 200 butterfly event, 4 of them swimming CQTs – Ollie I, Daniel, Ella T & Ella N – with massive PBs. Tom C also swam a huge PB. A tough event to finish a very long day with!

Our team managers reported that everyone was very well behaved and a credit to the Club. Lots of great support for each other too.

A fantastic well done to all of our swimmers!

Mark Savill reports that the officials poolside also managed to fit in a Time Keeper practical test as well as a J1 and a J2 Assessment. All 3 passed! There was also mentoring for J1 and J2S officials who volunteered at the meet

Thank you to everyone who helped throughout the the day!
