Latest Club News


Thought I'd let you have a few statistics from the weekend's gala at Maxwell.

We had 28 swimmers entered into 135 events - 15 of them being swam for the first time. We had swimmers from 7 squads there with Grace, Mattie & On Bong competing in their first "real" gala.

Of the 135 swims, 102 new Personal Best times were achieved.

Biggest margins were from:

· Oscar - 200 IM - 16.4 secs / 200 Free - 12 secs / 100 IM - 9 secs

· Adrien - 100 IM - 13.8 secs / 200 Free - 12.4 secs / 100 Back - 8.4 secs

· Isabelle - 200 Free - 10.2 secs / 100 Free - 9.4 secs

· Poppy - 100 IM - 15 secs

· Charlotte - 200 IM - 10.4 secs

· Isobel - 200 Back - 8.8 secs

· Emmanuella - 50 Free -7.88 secs - which is phenomenal over such short a distance!

There were only 4 disqualifications - the daftest of which was from Ben T who seemed to forget that he couldn't swim the whole of the first length underwater in the 50m backstroke!!

In the 50m events, there were finals for the 9, 10 and 11 year age groups, and 6 of our swimmers achieved between them 10 Top 8 places and therefore qualified – Esther (50m Back & 50m Breast), Emmanuella (50m Breast & 50m Free), Amelie (50m Free), Adrien (50m Back & 50m Breast), Isobel (50m Back) and Harvey (50m Breast & 50m Free).

We had 66 Top 10 placings (nearly 50%!) which included 2 Golds, 6 Silvers and 7 Bronzes.

There was, as always, great team camaraderie - from both swimmers and parents - and hopefully you all enjoyed yourselves.

I do know that Mark was extremely pleased with all the fabulous backstroke starts and it was great to see all your hard work in training reap rewards.

After last year's very successful quiz night we thought we would challenge your brains again and will hold our Barramundi Quiz Night on SATURDAY MARCH 30TH. This will be a night of fun, food & drink, prizes and games and hopefully, like last year, it will be a great fundraiser for the club.

Leave the kids at home and come on your own, make up a team and / or bring friends or family members along and book a table.


More details to follow but we wanted to get the date in your diaries.

SUMMER 2019 We would like to organise a Barramundi family picnic – everyone welcome! An afternoon of food, fun, football and frisbie; relaxing, rounders and rejoiceful (!)

Our Annual Awards Ceremony and End of Season Celebration will be help to celebrate the achievements of EVERY swimmer in the club over the season 2018 / 2019.
