Top squad had a lovely time at Pato Lounge on Thursday 22nd September, where we wished Ben Langdown, a top squad swimmer and bronze coach, good luck at Loughborough University where he is going to study aeronautical engineering. We sent him off with a university survival kit and a few special gifts so he doesn’t forget us. Good luck Ben!

Top squad had a fun evening thanks to Vats and his Jack Petchy award in Creams on Monday night. Ice cream and waffles were enjoyed, while we also wished Sam Ryan good luck on his new adventures at Mount Kelly.

What a great day at the summer meet up! So nice to see so many people from lots of different squads. Pretty sure everyone was worn out after our mammoth game of man hunt and sardines. Looking forward to seeing everyone at the next event. Don’t forgot to sign up for the captains' gala on 5th September for more fun and games but this time in the pool. Captains' Team

A big thank you to all those swimmers and their families that attended our Summer Splash Gala last Sunday at New Addington. Although this was a fun event, full race conditions applied and our officials were out in force with stop watches at the ready. There were both 25m and 50m events and it was really impressive that most swimmers gave every event a go and set a time. Any swimmer that won their heat got a squishy of their choosing, with some swimmers gaining quite a collection by the...

We had some tough competitive clubs at the same pool, but given everyone is racing virtually against all 14 clubs,the team had to work...
