Well done all who took part in the first session of the Autumn club champs and everyone who helped out poolside. You can now download the full results.
We all hoped to see more squad swimmers present – entering is really part of being in a competitive squad and the champs are the friendliest, most supportive galas you’ll ever swim at! The club champs are not only about trying to get county times, they’re for swimming your hardest and seeing if you can get a PB.
We’ve extended the deadline for the next two sessions of these champs on 16th and 17th November – just fill in the online form to enter. It’s free!
The club Annual General Meeting will take place in the sixth form lecture theatre at Ernest Bevin College at 7:30pm on Tuesday 12th November. NB All squad sessions not at Ernest Bevin that evening are cancelled. All parents are welcome to invited to come along to hear the latest news from the club (refreshments will also be served).

At the end of July a few Leander swimmers set off to Swansea for the Welsh Nationals. There were many fine performances, especially Toby Seriki – gold in the 50 fly, silvers in the 100 and 50 back and a finalist in the 100 fly. We wish Toby lots of luck in the future. Reiss Ormonde-Cunningham also did really well – bronze in the 400IM and made the finals of the 50, 100 and 200 breast.
Special congratulations to Tyler Podmore, who PB’ed in his first competitive race since 2010 due to shoulder injury.
You can even watch Reiss’s IM swim on YouTube!
