 Team Clevedon Sparkle at Annual Club Championships

Clevedon swimming club hosted their annual club championships this weekend at Hutton Moor Leisure Centre in Weston Super Mare and was shared for the first time with Weston Super Mare swimming club.

The event is a celebration of swimming with members from both clubs aged between eight and 18 taking part. Swimmers are able to enter as many of the 19 races as they like with the aim of winning the most points in their age group. Medals were presented on the day to all race winners and the overall winners of each age group, girls and boys, will receive a trophy at the annual club presentation evening in early January.

Head Coach, Patricia Leaman commented;

“I am so very proud of our swimmers who sparkled in the water and out this weekend. What an absolutely stunning performance.

Our older swimmers helped encourage our younger swimmers, supporting our new competitors, assisting with warm up and reassuring them they will be great! In addition, our older swimmers helped our Meet Manager with the running of the event which was invaluable.”

Overall Team Clevedon clocked up 607 personal bests, 235 Somerset county qualifying times including 14 swimmers who qualified for the 2020 Somerset County Championships for the first time.
