Fun in the Park!
The weather held up on Saturday, with what turned out to be a scorcher!
Thank you to everyone that turned out and enjoyed a relaxing afternoon in the park. With food and drink a plenty it was great to just chill out!
A great day was had by all with some relaxed team games, a perfect end to a busy season.
Our social team once again did us proud in organising this event.
Watch this space for the next social event coming up!
Open Water Championships
Thank you to all our swimmers that travelled to Norwich over the weekend to compete in the East Region Open Water Championships at Whitlingham.
Events kicked off with the Novice 800m event followed by a the 1.5k event, however due to intense thunderstorm and torrential rain, the womens 1.5K event and mens 5k event were forced to be abandoned for safety reasons.
With the Club Championship Sprint events concluding last night and the season almost at an end, we still have some very important dates ahead that we need to remain focused for.
This weekend is a busy one, weather permitting our Events Team will be hosting a 'picnic in the park' click here for full details. Please ensure you check the website if the weather changes we will post an update!
On Sunday 20th July, some of our swimmers will be taking their swimming ability outside, competing in the East Region OPEN WATER event in Norwich.
CLUB SPRINTS RESULTS
The 2014 Club Championships SPRINTS concluded tonight.
Well done to all our swimmers that participated in the events over the three sessions. We are fortunate as a club to be able to put these events on to assist our swimmers to obtain licensed times that can be used in future competitions. Obviously we really would not be able to have done this without our large army of volunteers, from licensing the gala, collating entries, running of the gala, the AOE, the officials, announcers, poolside and door helpers and our coaches support.
Thank you to everyone that has assisted in making this such a huge success!
Medals awarded from the events will be presented at our end of year Awards evening (date to be confirmed) together with our Distance Events that take place from 1st October, details will be released in September.
