The Club finished in 5th position out of 13 Clubs
These results are outstanding and everyone at the club should feel very prod, our club President Robert Hicks said,
'WOW and more WOW - I feel very confident that this years results are the BEST ever, for sure nothing comes close to this since my own personal involvement with the club that began in 1989. Everyone involved should feel very proud of this result, it does not come easy and not without tons of effort. All swimmers should be really proud in representing the club. In fact if I cast my mind back to those early days it was deemed very unusual to send swimmers to the counties let alone consider winning any medals. With success you build more success .....AND meet some great people on the way'
