The Queen's Commonwealth Games baton came to Northamptonshire on Sunday 10th July and our Rebecca was selected to carry it! The baton was delivered to Corby International Pool where CASC swimmer Archie carried it into the pool and to the diving boards, where it was handed over to Rebecca. It was great that this happened during an open meet so there were plenty of swimmers and spectators on hand to cheer along. Well done Rebecca - we're sure that this memory will stay with you forever!

Masters swimmer Lyndsay recently competed at British Masters in Aberdeen. After solid swims on Friday and Saturday she stepped it up on Sunday to take silver in the 200m freestyle and then an amazing bronze, with a 3 second lifetime PB, in the 100m fly! We are incredibly proud of Lyndsay and the example she sets for our younger swimmers.

Kettering ASC took a team of swimmers to Nuneaton for the Leicester Sharks County Qualifier over the weekend of 18/19 December. This was an opportunity for some of our younger swimmers to chase down the qualifying times for Northamptonshire County Champs in the New Year, and for our more experienced swimmers to have a final "blow out" before a short rest over Christmas. The team did us proud! There were Personal Bests, Qualifying Times, Club Records and 58 medals (27 Gold, 15 Silver and 16 Bronze) won over the course...

Our 75th Club Championships have come to an end. After 3 sessions at Corby East Midland International Pool we have seen amazing swimming, PB's, County Qualifying Times and Club Records. Some of our swimmers have had their first taste of competitive swimming in the friendliest of environments. None of this would have happened without our amazing volunteers, including officials from Corby ASC and Northampton SC. Our 100m freestyle champions will have their names added to the Honours Board at Kettering Swimming Pool. Congratulations to Lily, Daniel, Grace and James. We...
