A very big well done to Alex, Jacob, Simon, and Caitlin who participated in the BBAT Distance Meet at Aqua Vale yesterday. Each of them put on a fine performance in the pool after such a long break in competitive swimming. We look forward to the BBAT Autumn Meet next weekend, where we will see many of our swimmers in action.

We are delighted to announce that Club Captains for the 21/22 season are Ruby Millard and Alex de Beer. Ruby joined BEJSC when she was 7 years old and Alex joined in 2016. Ruby's favourite stroke is backstroke and admits she is not a fan of butterfly. On the contrary, Alex's favourite stroke is butterfly and he is not as keen on breaststroke. Both are members of our C3 squad. Congratulations Ruby and Alex!

Club time trials were held over two weekends on 13th and 27th June 2021. We were delighted that swimmers embraced the opportunity to check their progress since the last time trials in the Autumn. The younger swimmers were particularly impressive in their determination, especially as many have never participated in a time trial or competition before. Regular attendance at training sessions will see all swimmers improving their technique, stamina and speed. Swimmers should keep this in mind as the BBAT gala is coming up in September. (Note: The time trial...

We're very pleased to hear that one of our swimmers, Andrew Partridge, is part of the Modern Pentathlon Athlete Development programme and swimming with Bourne End has helped him progress. Here's Andrew's story so far - I have been a part of Bourne End for about 5 years now. I joined the club from a local learn to swim programme and was not considered a 'sporty' child, however the club has played a major part in changing my sporting career and opportunities. Alongside my swimming, I also joined a local...

We're very pleased to have welcomed back Jenny Roberts to Bourne End Swimming Club. She joined us without any fanfare but as soon as she started swimming, her fellow Masters could tell she had some form - in fact Jenny swam with Bourne End as a youngster and held many Club records some of which still stand (Jenny Shorrocks)! Jenny's a keen runner and triathlete and it's great to see her back in the water. Here's her story: I joined the club in 1994 at 9 years old. I started...
