Bolton and District Swim Gala 3rd March

Well done to the team that competed at the gala last weekend. There were many good performances, with swimmers from the club winning eight of their races. We came third overall and could have had more points if we could field a full team. We do need more swimmers , particularly in the boys team and the 9u age group in particular as we lost points due to no swimmer. If you know any boys who might want to join the club or compete then please speak to the one of the coaches on poolside,.

Good luck to the team in the Merseyside and District Gala that is coming up this weekend on Sunday 10th March at Europa pools..
