EPSC - ACS Trophy Gala - 10th June 2017 Report

What a fantastic day was had by all on Saturday 10th June at ACS Cobham with our first ever Trophy Gala where EPSC swimmers were competing against ACS swimmers.

With over 90 people entered, it meant our afternoon was a full meet with lots of very nervous little people competing at their first gala.


Elmbridge Phoenix had a very successful afternoon with many first times recorded as well as many Personal Bests achieved for our older swimmers.

It was great to have our Junior Squads, Senior Squad, Junior Performance, Senior Performance and Masters swimming as well. Their attendance really gave some of our younger swimmers something to aspire too. 


Congratulations to the following winners of their age groups.  These swimmers were from our Young Swimmer or Development Squads.

The Coaches relay at the end of the meet was a highly contentious event leading up to the day.  Who will swim? How will Gema fit her lovely locks in a hat? Glen swimming for ACS? It was a fantastic team effort from Sarah Lidbetter, Dave Butler, Gema Cann & Seb Leather to take a comfortable victory over the ACS Coaches. Until 2018 ... keep training team!


We hope that all attended enjoyed their afternoon, followed by the BBQ with the meat kindly sponsored by Bevan's Butchers.  Please support our sponsor with visiting them at Garsons Farm in Esher or Kingston Upon Thames for your next BBQ - their sausages and burger patties are 'fuel for our next champions!'


A very big thank you to Christina Victor and Sam Chadwick for stepping in to act as our Referee's for the day.  Also many thanks to all our officials and volunteers for assisting the club with running the day.  We do appreciate all you do.
