The season started off with the annual Newton Abbot Ribbon Gala on Saturday which was attended by 19 of our younger squad swimmers. For many this was their first taste of a gala but that didn’t stop them from performing brilliantly! Lots of medals and ribbons were won but more importantly all swimmers thoroughly enjoyed themselves and as coaches we are excited to see them compete in their next gala ! Well done.
Paignton teamed up with Totnes swimming club to compete in this event at the Plymouth Life Centre at the end of June. Competitors arrived from near and a far with ages ranging from 16 years to 80 plus!!!
All walked away with several medals and some Pbs
Sam and Adam took four golds respectively, Emma took a gold, two silvers and a bronze …. and Jane took 2 golds.
Thanks to our 3 officials who helped make this a great event for young and old alike.
