Preston Swimming Club hosted their annual club championships at West View Leisure Centre in Preston and this year saw the highest number of entries.

Held over two weekends, this year saw a record number of entries, more than 160, competing in a range of events including breaststroke, freestyle and butterfly.

The championships allow swimmers from the highly successful training programme to get their first taste of competitive swimming, alongside the more experienced swimmers hoping to gain both regional and national times.

Head coach Steve Heaps is delighted with the standard of swimmers at the club.

He said:“This year’s club championships saw us have a record number of entries, and swam over four sessions and two days of intense competition, the swimmers performed very well indeed.

“We saw plenty of club records tumble and the standard just appears to improve year on year which is very pleasing indeed.”

As ever Heap is keen to acknowledge the work that goes on behind the scenes.

“I would like to sincerely thank those who gave up their free time to ensure the club championships were a roaring success,” he added.

The unsung heroes of the club who yet again ensured the rest of us could enjoy the swimming. I would also like to thank Steve Daley and his staff at West View and Fulwood, who do all they can to help our club.”
