First Club Night a Success

This season’s first club night and time trials was a huge success with 82 of our registered 102 swimmers participating in the night and 78 swimmers participating in the time trials.

Many Personal Best Times (PB’s) were swum and two club age group records were broken

  • Julia Weltner 50m Butterfly - 10yrs -
  • Andreis Niemann 100m IM - 15yrs -
Four swimmers have already qualified for JX (Junior Excellence) Squads based on times achieved – already 1 more than last season.

If you have any feedback or ideas for improving this event for next month, please contact Phillipa – all suggestions welcome.
