Congratulations to our Junior Club Captains, Nathan Apps and Flo Hadley who have both been selected for the South West Regional Pathway Programme. This is the second step on the Swim England development pathway and is aimed at the top 16 boys and girls aged 12 years from the South West region. Well done Flo and Nathan – a real credit to your and your coaches’ hard work and achievements over the past year and some great news as we finally return to the pool.
Please all remember to restart your standing orders for the beginning of September.

For those in the early sessions of Learn to swim
It is with great sadness & regret that we must inform you, that due to the Ruling of Lex leisure; with relation to the direct competition element of our learn to swim programme, that we are unable to offer you a place when the club returns in September.
Please accept our apologies, the club is saddened by Lex leisure’s decision in this matter but there is no discussion or agreement that is being permitted.
The club is actively looking at the possibility of other venues and days for the club sessions to continue but as you can imagine this is not a quick option. Pool time in the bay is always restricted and with the extra issues that Covid has brought about this is even worse.
We have at present been able to secure you a place with Seahorses swim school, if you wish to take it, your contract will be with them and not the club. Their contact email is "> Please note that times and days may be different.
We would however like to confirm that once your child reaches the standard which will enable them to re-join the club that they will be given priority. This will be for swimmers who attain Stage 4 upwards.
We wish your child well in their aquatic journey and hope that we can welcome them back in the near future.
We will keep you on the membership list until December 2020, in the hope that we may be able to find pool space elsewhere. Please let me know if you do not wish this to happen and I will delete from the system.
Paignton swimming Club
After many months out of the pool, training finally returned for two of our squads. It was a great first session back for both the competition and performance squads on Friday night at the outdoor pool at Bovey Tracey. The swimmers thoroughly enjoyed being back in the water and seeing their friends in a safe, well organised, environment. A huge thank you to our Committee who have worked tirelessly to pull this together and also to Bovey Tracey Outdoor Pool for allowing us to use their lovely pool.
With the current increase in online shopping, please take this opportunity to use
easy fundraising to raise more money to support our club.
We are very pleased to introduce you to our club captains:

The Devon Inter Club gala followed on the Sunday where the club competed against teams from across Devon. The standard of competition was extremely high, but all of our swimmers swam extremely well resulting in Paignton coming 6th overall. Well done to all who competed.
The club had a busy weekend at the Plymouth Life Centre, kicking off on Saturday with the Devon County relay gala. Nine teams were entered for the competition with the 10/11 girls entering 3 teams! For some of our younger swimmers this was their first experience of swimming in a 50m pool, but they took up the challenge and swam brilliantly.
The 10/11 boys won silver and bronze medals and the 16 and over men’s team won two bronze medals. Alex also picked up a further medal with a swim in the schools relay event.
Thank you to all team managers and team captains who helped organise the huge contingency of swimmers.
