Open to all club members, Presentation Evening is a celebration of the past 12 months.

Coaching announcement

Our Age Group Performance & Junior Squad Lead coach, Arthur Lawlor, will be leaving the club at the end of October.

Arthur has been with the club for just over a year, working with our junior squad and more recently with the Age Group performance squad. He will be sorely missed and we wish him well in the future.

Arthur will be taking up a post at Millfield school within their junior coaching team.

Whilst disappointing, it highlights the level of training and experience our coaches obtain from working with the club, to enable them to move on to such opportunities.

The club will be working hard to find a replacement in as short a period as possible.

If you have any questions or worries, please see Dan Cross. We will publish our plans for cover in the interim, in due course.

Maisie – 4th in the WORLD!

Maisie Macartney represented GB at the World Junior Open Water Championships in Eilat, Israel on Thursday 6th September.  Maisie completed the gruelling 7.5km race in FOURTH place, having battled throughout in the leading pack with US, Italian and Spanish swimmers.  Maisie’s tough training regime throughout the summer certainly paid off, she was in the mix right from the start, with places changing throughout the race, she even took a stint in the lead. Maisie’s finish time was 1 hour and 33 minutes, and at the end, just 1.7 seconds separated 2nd to 4th places.Maisie 15 - Places 4th

Maisie 2 - Start Line-up Maisie 8 - Lap 2 end - makes a play for the lead!  Maisie 13 - Finish (4th on the touch)
