Awards Evening: Back in June, the Penzance Swimming Club Championships were held at Penzance Leisure Centre, over four evenings of exciting competition.  Swimmers were able to compete in a maximum of 16 events with points awarded according to swimmers’ finishing positions. The age group winners were the swimmers who accumulated the most points. More recently, the swimmers received their trophies and medals at the club presentation evening, held at the Jubilee Pool. Awards were given to the top six swimmers in each age group by head coach, James Ryan. This was James’ last awards evening as he will soon be embarking on a new adventure, starting in September. James will be greatly missed by everyone at the club; and we would like to thank him for his massive contribution to the development of swimming at Penzance. We wish James all the best for his new venture. 

Penzance water polo recently played hosts to Devonport, in an under 15 and under 18 mixed teams.
The visitors won both games narrowly 11-5 and 12-11. The matches were very exciting, and both Penzance teams provided strong opposition to the vastly more experienced Devonians.

Congratulations to all of the swimmers who competed in Round 2 of the Cornwall & Devon Summer Swimming League recently held at the Plymouth Life Centre. A fantastic team effort, well done everyone! 

Five members of Penzance Swimming Club went up to Bodmin last weekend for the Newquay Cormorants Level 3 Open Meet Gala. The team had a fantastic day with some podium positions and many brilliant personal best times. Olivia and Lucia also made it into the finals. Olivia came 4th in 50m Breaststroke and Lucia came 6th in the 200m Backstroke.  Well done to Olivia, Lucia, Molly, Isla and Lottie! Great swimming!

Dominic Butterfield (50 Butterfly and 50 Backstroke), Lexie Frost (50 Breaststroke) and Maddie Walker (50 and 100 Breaststroke) all competed and swam fantastic races, gaining some personal best times. Well done!

A special mention to Melody Roberts who made the finals of the 16 year old 100 Freestyle and 100 Butterfly finishing 8th in both! Great performances all around. Well done to all swimmers!
