Backwell Swimming Club were involved in a tie for first place at home in the Cotswold League Gala.

Backwell Swimming Club welcomed Bath Dolphins, Bristol Aquatics and Cwmbran Otters for round three of the Cotswold League Gala.

During two hours of uninterrupted swimming, all members of Team Backwell, young and older, swam to their limits.

In more than 53 races, the lead was never more than a couple of points and the end result reflected the efforts of all the competitors, with Backwell tying for first place with Bath Dolphins, in a hugely exciting finish.

This evening proved a great lesson to all who attended, that every swimmer, every point, every place counts and that a race is never completed until you hit the wall.

Firstly the club would like to thank Bath Dolphins, Bristol Aquatics and Cwmbran Otters for creating a memorable evening.

The club would also like to thank all the parents and volunteers who dedicate so much of their free time supporting our talented swimmers.

Swimming is a great inclusive sport, which helps individuals grow and improve themselves mentally and physically. At Backwell Swimming Club we actively encourage our swimmers to be the best that they can be, in both swimming and in life.

Backwell Swimming Club is made up of approximately 180 swimmers from the Backwell, Bristol, Nailsea and Portishead catchment areas. If you are interested in joining or supporting our club please take a look at our website or come along to the pool on a club night and have a chat with one of the club coaches or officials.
