Compendium Challenge 2017

The club’s team spirit was clearly in evidence at last night’s Compendium Challenge which saw swimmers from ages 7 to 62 years old taking part. For some it was their first ever competitive events whist others could take pride in completing the endurance test of 8 sprint events in one session. All with the added bonus of spot prizes! Congratulations on the many Qualifying times, Club Records and Personal Best Times.

Compendium Challenge Officials & Helpers

Thanks to all our officials, coaches, volunteers and parents for your support. We could not hold such galas without you.
