If you are a swimmer who likes to analyse your performance and progress in more detail then please contact Graham at poolside to discuss your requirements.

The 4th session of the Club Championships took place on Sunday 24th Feb which saw over 40 swimmers taking part.  At the end of the session Tabitha Vaughan, Steven Upperdine and Dan Clarke decided to have a rematch of Splashtheir earlier 100m Freestyle event.  This time Steven triumphed with an exceptional 1:05.60 finish time.  Following a stewards enquiry by the other two swimmers which claimed Steven had created a tsunami during his start it was agreed the result would still stand.  However, as a result of Stevens pool entry the pool level will be approximately 1 metre lower the next time you swim.
