Corby Swimming Club held their 7th successful Long Course Open Meet in March at the fantastic East Midland International Pool. The two day swimming competition was open to any swimmer from an affiliated club and attracted entries from all over the Country. It was well supported by our local swim clubs as well as clubs from Derbyshire, Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Staffordshire and Leicestershire. In total 28 clubs attended along with The Mayor of Corby, Cllr Mohammed Rahman and Brian Collis from Swim England.
Corby swimmers produced some amazing swims with more gaining qualification times to swim at the upcoming Regional Championships. Corby Swimming Club have a record 26 qualifiers for these Regional Championships with the under 14 years competition being held in April at Corby.
Tim Evans, Head Coach at Corby said ‘Corby swimmers have been training hard working towards a specific training schedule which has given more amazing results. Our club is growing very quickly and the standard of swimming keeps rising with over 60 now competing at County level, 26 qualifying for the Regional Championships and I would expect 4 or 5 to be selected for this years Nationals. Swimming is a really tough sport but Corby deserves all it’s success purely because of the work that is done! We really appreciate the work that goes into our fantastic meets by a small army of volunteers and I’m glad the council have now given support for two more 2 day meets to happen in 2020 as well as our October meet this year.’
