More PBs and a medal at the Age Group Champs

Mon 22/May/2017

For the 20th and 21st of May the competition moved to Crystal Palace. Samantha Jackson swam in the 50m Breaststroke and Fly as well as the 100m Breaststroke and the 200IM. Samantha swam a great PB in the 100 Breaststroke. Callum Baronti also swam over a second PB in the 50 Fly which is superb for such a short event. Jess Herbert swam in the 200 IM and the 400m Freestyle. Jess swam a PB in the 200m Freestyle which got her in the final where she then swam another PB to finish 7th. She also made the final of the 100m Backstroke and finished in a fantastic 3rd place. Congratulations to our swimmers, great to see you all swimming more personal best times in the big competitions.

Tudor League Round 5

Mon 22/May/2017

On Saturday 20th our team headed to Eltham for round five of the Tudor League. The Tudor league is fast and furious starting and ending with a squadron relay and made up of four set of relays and loads of individual events. The swimmers were well behaved, cheered as always, and gave their very best which resulted in some great personal best times. The Tudor League once again provided a great evening for our swimmers to enjoy racing whilst picking up valuable experiences and having fun. We finished 7th with 203 points, congratulations to Dartford District who won this round with 292 points. The Tudor League has speed limits in events so clubs don't enter their fastest swimmers in every event and we lost a few points by picking up five. We had just two disqualifications so more practice back in the training pool. A great evening for everyone, thank you to our swimmers, coaches and our parents.

Master Tracy smashes the record

Mon 22/May/2017

Congratulations to Kayleigh and Tracy van Rooyen who competed at the EDSC Masters Meet on Sunday 21st. Kayleigh entered the 50m Back and 50m Freestyle and finished an excellent 2nd in both events. Tracy raced almost every event on the programme. She finished in 1st place in the 200, 100 and 50m Backstroke as well as the 100m IM and finished 2nd in the 50m Fly. In the 200m Backstroke the Kent record had stood since 2009 but Tracey smashed it yesterday by an incredible 19 seconds! This was her aim for the meet and she absolutely deserves every second of that record. On the 100m back she was just 2/100th of a second off the record and also less than a second off the IM record. She is aiming for those now next time. Well done ladies!

Special Info

Notices

Please remember to bring a couple of important items to galas, almost as important as your goggles. 1) A lightweight top to wear between races; the clubs T-Bag is perfectly designed for this. It is lightweight, quick drying and airy to allow the costume or shorts to dry whilst being worn underneath. (See Steve on Monday evenings to purchase) 2) A sports drink bottle. Galas can be a couple of hours or more; you must stay hydrated. Also, remember to put your name on your kit please.
Here are a couple of dates to note down for July. On the 2nd we will be getting together for a summer BBQ at Pratts Bottom Village Hall and on the 14th we will be hosting a quiz night at Badgers Mount Hall. More details to follow.
