The 9th age group swimming meeting


9th age group NEWS

The 9th age group swimming meeting organised by the ASA was held on Saturday 3rd November.  The weather was perfect for a meet which featured a record number of 275 swimmers. A big well done goes to all clubs who are putting all their effort to promote swimming and this seems to be working as the number of swimmers in the last years increased exponentially. 
Our club was represented by 36 swimmers which in total took part in 103 races.  5 Sliema swimmers made their competitive debut and their performance reflected their enthusiasm and eagerness to learn and improve.  Eight local clubs took part:
