BBAT Autumn Meet - 25th & 26th September 2021

Gillian Valentine

The weekend of 25th and 26th September presented the first opportunity in a very long time for our swimmers to show off their swimming skills at a competitive meet.  There were PBs galore – not just improvements to times from competitive meets two or more years ago, but improvements to times set at the Club Time Trials held in June of this year.  This shows just how important it has been to get our swimmers training regularly again and is a testament to our swimmers’ resilience and hard work.

Swimmers collected 38 medals in total.  We are especially proud of our younger swimmers for whom a competitive meet was a new experience.  All our swimmers acquitted themselves very well and behaved fantastically poolside.  It is always gratifying to see club members encouraging each other as well as swimmers from other clubs.  Well done to Ruby and Alex, our Club Captains.  You led the team brilliantly!  Huge thanks to those who assisted by officiating or by marshaling.
