A team of New Beacon swimmers competed at one of the national regional qualifying rounds on Friday 25 January at Walthamstow Hall School, Sevenoaks.

The team was made up of U10 to U13 swimmers competing in both individual and relay events. As this was a qualifying round only we will have to wait until the end of the Spring Term/Easter holidays to know which swimmers have secured a place to swim in the IAPS national finals taking place at The London Aquatic Centre on Saturday 8 June.

There was some excellent swimming amongst  very tough opposition but all the team held their own with some best times being recorded.

The IAPS swimmers competing were: Joshua D, Ignacio M, Joshua H, Robert K, Alex Y, Tiger B, Hector M, Tim K, Henry P, Jonny V, Oscar M, Conor C, William K, Alec S & James F.

The staff team at Walthamstow Hall made us all very welcome and I would like to thank Mr Eisawy from The New Beacon who accompanied and assisted us on the day.
