Congratulations to the 22 Watford swimmers who participated in Round One of the Peanuts League competition at Stevenage on Saturday 17 May. For many this was their first experience of a team competition but the swimmers all supported and cheered on each other. Everyone did really well with many achieving PBs. Details of the overall and individual results will be available on the membership area of the website shortly.

Watford were up against some really tough competition against teams from Costa, Harpenden, Potters Bar, Stevenage and Tring. But the team put on an amazing performance to clinch second place behind Costa who won with only 73 points. Stevenage were third, then it was very close with only one point between 4th place Harpenden and 5th place Potters Bar and Tring came 6th.

For those new to this, the object of the competition is to get the fewest points possible. There is more information on the Hertfordshire Swimming League website - http://www.hsleague.org.uk/.

A  BIG THANK YOU to the Blue Check in Bushey for hosting yet another successful Club Dinner Dance which was held last Friday 7th March.

With excellent food and good friends the evening was a huge success.  Our thanks to Nigel McMorrin and Barbara Sargent for organising this event year on year.

It was so lovely to see so many long standing members and new, come together and enjoy time away from the pool.  It was a real pleasure to share the evening with a whole host of past and present Presidents (pictured).

Several other pictures from the night will be loaded shortly and can be viewed in our membes area by clicking here.

Thanks again to everyone that attended.   Our next club social is the Quiz Night on 29th March, therefore please do get in touch with our Social Secretary full details attached to book your table!

Rhianna BelgiumNot content with putting in the hours swimming, young Rhianna Patel is also a Red Belt in WTF Taekwondo! Last Sunday 2nd March, the family traveled to Tongeren in Belgium so that Rhianna could compete at the 31st Open Challenge Cup Kyorugi. A long journey and a very long day but well worth it as Rhianna won an impressive Gold trophy!

This was her first fight using the electronic Olympic style body protector, valuable experience for the future. Rhianna has been training in Taekwondo for 4 years at the B J Academy in Abbots Langley and already this year she won Gold in the NTC tournament in Nottingham in February. Congratulations Rhianna, good luck for your next competition; but save a bit for swimming!
