Tilehurst Sprint Meet 2017
Well done and thank you to everyone who either took part or helped at the TSC Sprint Meet. It was a fantastic day with many exciting races and PBs achieved, followed by food, fun and games out on the field. The swimmers vs adult races were a hit again. The Skins event was also an exciting new addition to the competition this year – well done to the inaugural winners, Bruno Kempster and Hannah Stewart. All the gala results have now been recorded and uploaded to the OnDeck app, so you can see the times your child achieved.
It was great to see so many new swimmers competing for the first time – hope you all enjoyed it. Sadly for some of our swimmers, this was their last competition for Tilehurst, as many move off to new schools or university. We will miss you, but hopefully you will continue to swim and remain members of TSC. You would be welcome to join us for training during the holidays or even to represent us in the Arena League on occassions.
Particular thanks to Gill Dinsdale for organising the officials, to all the officials as these events cannot happen without you, to the coaches for supporting the swimmers and to Kate Taylor for organising the inflatables.

You may also have noticed the Club Records posted around the pool. Thank you to Carol Campbell for spending hours on the ASA website digging through 20 years of TSC swims to compile a list of all-time club records. You can see these posted on the website under the "Results" tab. Some of these need updating already as records were broken at the sprint meet – well done to those swimmers!
Votes were also taken for the new club logo during the session – this was the winning design.
And finally, there is no swimming for the next 2 weeks. Remember to sign up for tick over from the 25th July and the autumn season will start again on Monday 4th September.
Have a lovely summer.
