We’re very proud to report that on Saturday 10th December 2016 four of our young poolside helpers (Amelia, Holly, Reece and Alex) volunteered at the National Para-Swimming Championships.
This annual prestigious event took place at the Manchester Aquatics Centre on 10-11th December 2016. The event was delivered in 4 sessions over 2 days in partnership with the ASA & British Para-Swimming.
The event hosted a mixture of celebrated Paralympians old and new, alongside the next generation of rising stars. ASA celebrated the success of the GB Swimming team with a victory parade to open the championships.
The Leisure centre has closed the pool due to an issue with the temperature. The swimming session tonight has been cancelled. Sorry for the late notice.
The first Sputnik Gala at Macclesfield leisure centre is on Saturday 17th December @ 1600.
The gala is up to 12 years of age, so let have another great turn out, and team performance in this gala series.
Here are the entry forms, so if you wish to enter.
Please find attached links to the results from this years Tadpoles gala events. Poynton Dippers have had an excellent set of results.
Well done to everyone who took part. As a club we had our best result ever. We had the overall B grade winner in two age groups and also a C grade winner. Lots of the swimmers achieved their personnel best times and we also had many new swimmers competing for the first time and gaining valuable experience.
Most importantly though everyone who represented dippers – both swimmers and team managers had a great time and really enjoyed it. We look forward to next year’s event.
