The first round of this league was held last Saturday evening at Larkfield Leisure Centre.

The whole team competed really well with 14 PB’s achieved resulting which helped us to a first place finish by one point. The margin of victory would have been bigger had,  ‘yours truly’, thoroughly checked the team sheet and not left Olivia White swimming two relay legs in Event 43! 🙄 Well done to Olivia who did her best to sprint down poolside to get back in time to swim the last leg without being noticed.

Final Result:

  • 1st Dartford District 179
  • 2nd Gravesend 178
  • 3rd Beachfield/ Tonbridge 159
  • 4th Eltham 156
  • 5th White Oak 138
  • 6th Larkfield 134

The next round is on Saturday 12th March at Eltham. Email invites for selected swimmers has been sent out by me personally. Please check your spam box as well as your inbox and confirm asap. Hopefully we will be able to welcome a full quota of spectators to this one. 🤞

Don’t be disappointed if you have not yet been selected, I am endeavoring to ensure all eligible swimmers get a chance to swim in the league this year.

I have appointed Calum Smith and Imogen Anscomb as Millennium Team Captains for this year. Their role is to  support all team members, particularly the younger ones.

Finally, thanks to Liberty Anscomb and Peyton White for helping poolside and ensuring our relay swimmers entered and exited the pool safely, plus Amy White, Fiona Anscomb, Joanne Smith and Natalie Castleton for marshalling the children and judging. 👍
