2020 saw us with 14 boys and 11 girls qualify for the Cheshire County Championships, continuing our increase in qualifying swimmers from 21 in 2019 and 11 on 2018. In 2019 we had a record number of swimmers qualifying for Regionals - 2 of which are now Regional Champions; a British finalist; 8 English National Finalists and a National Champion.
2019 saw the Club itself win a host of titles - Most Improved Club in Cheshire at the County Championships 2019, North West Region Club of the Year 2019, and Club of the Year - Silver Award in the National Awards.
None of this could be achieved without the tireless support of our Coaches and our swimming families and, as a non-profit organisation, we are completely reliant on fundraising to facilitate capital purchases, such as the starting blocks and more recently backstroke ledges, to improve our children’s swimming experience and support them in reaching their full potential and personal goals in competitive swimming, by achieving times that can be submitted to external galas within the comfort of their own swimming environment.
So, again, we are appealing for your support in fundraising – whether it be by hosting an event (coffee morning etc), doing a sponsored “something”, or just a simple donation. We have over 160 (swimming) Club members, so just a little support from the majority will help move us closer to our target.
We understand this is big ask but If you feel you are able to help, and maybe even have a little fun in the process, it would be greatly appreciated.
If you plan an event/sponsored event, please let us know and take photos for our website – your pictures/stories will appear on this page!
An easy way to fundraise for the Club is via the Easy Fundraising online service. Shopping doesn’t cost you a penny more, but as you make purchases online shops make a donation to the club. All you do is register (it’s good to click the “Find & Remind” button) and start shopping. Please give it a go and encourage others to do so too – it’s effectively free money to benefit the members of our club! Thank you.

Due to the current pandemic, we have halted our fundraising for equipment.
However, whilst we are very lucky that we are back in the pool, where there are lots of Clubs that can still not return to the water, due to the fewer numbers of swimmers permitted in the pool, despite having to increase training fees, our sessions still run at a loss. One way you can help without actually giving any more "real" is to simply go through "Easyfundraising" when you make purchases online.
Please click the link below for more information and consider shopping through Easyfundraising to help support the Club in these trying times.
If you need any kit - whether it be swimwear or training equipment, why not check out our "Donations" box at the desk each Sunday? There's a mixture of new and pre-loved kit in there with no fixed price! All we ask is a dontation towards Club funds.
