 Swimmers take on the best

SOUNDWELL Swimming Club is sending a record number of young swimmers to this year's British and English Age Group Swimming Championships.

Qualification for the championships is by invitation to the top-ranked swimmers in the country in each age group and event.

The swimmers train seven days a week at Kingswood Leisure Centre, under Jon Wills, head coach at the club which is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year.

They will compete at the end of July and in early August at the Ponds Forge International Sports Centre in Sheffield, with the British and English events taking place either side of the Commonwealth Games.

Club chair Sarah Taylor said: "To qualify for these championships is a huge achievement, and we are thrilled to have 11 swimmers competing this year, which is a club record.

"Some of the swimmers learned to swim at the club, and to see them progress over the years to reach this level is extremely rewarding for us."

Soundwell Swimming Club welcomes swimmers from beginner level upwards.
