Swim Camp Cyprus 2019

Jane Walker (Committee)

Swim Camp 2019 took place in Yeroskipou, a suburb of Paphos on the beautiful island of Cyprus.  A warm welcome greeted us from both the weather and the locals, and this remained with us throughout the week. 

Our accommodation was clean, tidy and more than suited our requirements and the hotel staff catered for everything we needed. The food was fantastic and perfectly satisfied our athletes dietary requirements. With a diverse bunch of likes, dislikes and food fads between us it was great to see that not one person went hungry and all ate their fill! Being denied the stunning desserts by our Head Coach was our only complaint – “you are athletes” .

Nothing at all seemed to much for the staff. They were exceptionally accommodating...

“You want to use the gym earlier than opening times? No problem!”

“You want one long table to sit together? No problem!”

“Land training? Use the astro – no problem!”


Cyprus you were amazing! We loved spending time with you and would like to thank everyone involved in our stay. In addition to Sylvia the hotel and pool staff we would also like to say a huge thank you to the Cypriot Tourist Board for their sponsorship, and in addition the Sports Abroad who were our liaisons in Cyprus and made our stay possible.


Our only complaint??? We could only stay a week – but our Head Coach says we can definitely come back!
