What a weekend at Ponds Forge

27 swimmers, along with coaches and family support made the journey to Pond's Forge Sheffield last weekend to compete in the Robin Hood Open Meet. Pond's Forge is a state of the art Olympic sized 50m pool that hosted the European Championships in 1993. Many world records have been set in this famous pool. Many of the improving young swimmers from Newmarket were seeing this arena for the first time, but we're clearly not overawed by their surroundings. Coach Anette Skeet and team manager Nicki Saunders expressed their delight at the standard achieved when Newmarket finished 4th team out of 32 teams present. This strong showing, up against some strong clubs such as City of Peterborough, with give invaluable experience for the future to the talented young swimmers. 16 Gold, 13 Silver, and 15 Bronze medals was their reward along with 190 Long Course personal bests. Many of the swimmers parents turned out to help officiate and Newmarket also supplied 5 trained officials to help with the time keeping and judging, proof of the club's ongoing drive to encourage training officials and support staff.
