Swimming Training

As many of you are aware White Horse Leisure Centre is closing their pool for redevelopment from the end of June 2016. The club's last session at this venue will be 30 June 2016, until we return there to the new facility in the autumn. Over summer we have arranged for sessions to take place 8 - 9pm in Thursdays at Radley College pool. The first session at Radley will be on Thursday 7 July. Sessions will start promptly at 8 and finish promptly at 9, so please be on time so you are changed, have paid, and are ready to swim at 8pm. The cost to members will remain £3 per week. We have hired the whole pool so will be able to offer different ability sessions, as we do now. The cost for this does mean that we are only able to offer one time slot, and I hope that you will all bear with us over the summer if you usually swim at 7pm.

Member News

What a weekend of racing!! There were numerous club members undertaking all sorts of different events this weekend, from sprint distance triathlon at Blenheim to Ironman races abroad, and then some very inspirational individuals who don't seem to quite understand how long long actually is with some 10km swimmers (no, that isn't a mistype that is equivalent to 400 lengths of the pool!) and of course a Double Ironman (because clearly one isn't enough). Well done to you all, we hope all that training paid off. We look forward to hearing all about your races at the next training sessions - wear those medals with pride!
