Thank you to all the clubs that took part in this weekends very successful Terry Davies Alternative Open Meet.
There were plenty of fantastic swims and many great PB's throughout the Gala.
A Special Well Done to Costa who were presented with the Terry Davies cup for the best visiting club for the second year running.
We hope you enjoyed the exciting skins competitions at the end of each day, a great feature of this gala and an added incentive for the swimmers to push that little bit farther!!
We would like to thank all the many helpers who made this meet, like ALL meets possible and to run so smoothly, from those in Hytec Towers, all the volunteer Officials and time keepers, Marshalls, door staff, drinks co-ordinators, food preparers and medal table staff. The list goes on and apologies if i've missed you out !!- If you like attending such Gala's and feel you have something to offer, feel free to make yourself known to Watford Swimming Club Committee members. We cannot have enough Helpers ;-)
For all the visiting Clubs, we look forward to seeing you at our next meet, The County Qualifier Open Meet on the 19th and 20th of November 2016.

Our two Peanuts Squads competed in the first round of the 2016 competition this past weekend.
The A SQUAD, reigning Division 1 Champions kicked off their campaign with a confident victory at Potters Bar against Verulam, Harpendon, Bishop Stortford, Stevenage and Hatfield B. Lots of great swims from experianced and unexperianced swimmers alike.
The B SQUAD, newly promoted from Div 3 after a fantastic year in 2015 again showed their worth by coming 3rd. They had a much depleted squad but still swam out of their skins to cement their presence in Division 2.
Onwards and Upwards for both Teams next Month for Round 2
