Last Saturday, 19 swimmers travelled down to the Life Centre in Plymouth to represent Paignton in the first round of the Arena League. Facing tough competition from Premier Division club, Plymouth Leander and fellow first division clubs, Brixham, Dawlish, Devonport and Newton Abbot, every swimmer put in a great performance. With fantastic team spirit spurring them on, there were numerous Personal Best times and gutsy swims, particularly from some of the girls swimming up one or two age groups. The fun and lively afternoon resulted in a close 2nd place finish for Paignton out of the first division clubs! Bring on round 2 in November!
