BOBCATS were competing for the second time this year at Kendal in the final round of the 2021 North West Arena League. It’s been great to get back into team racing and seeing BOBCATS swimmers of all ages getting to know and support each other. For the final round we were competing against the top 5 teams in the division, these were: Altrincham, Copeland, Fleetwood, Kendal and Ramsbottom. It’s fair to say that all the other clubs fielded their strongest swimmers in each / multiple events, including drafting in some...

38 Bobcats swimmers attended the Blackpool Lights open meet, it was great to see swimmers from all squads represented and I thought that everyone worked well together. It is also very encouraging to see more younger swimmers entering their first open meets. Well done to the following swimmers racing in their first open meet for Bobcats, you were all amazing: Sophia Cavallo, Charlotte Cheung, Alissa Cronshaw, Logan Meeks. I’m sure that you will have learnt lots from your first meet and will improve massively next time. For our swimmers in...

Bobcats competed at the Winter Regional Championships for the first time in two years on Saturday 6th / Sunday 7th November at Manchester Aquatic Centre.

Considering where swimmers were in their training program and the disrupted preparation, I thought that everyone performed exceptionally well, with all swimmers demonstrating that they are in a good position to continue improving as the season progresses. Lucy Turner was in great form,...

Bobcats competed at Kendal for the first round of the 2021 North West Arena League, it is approximately 10 years since we last entered a team and one of the few times the club has entered since the league was founded in 1970. This time round we are planning to be in for the long haul and want to prepare for next season when there will be promotion and relegation from the leagues. Our aim for 2021 is to give as many swimmers as possible the opportunity to be part...
