Club Presentation Evening

What a Success!! And many thanks to all the volunteers who made it a success!

After a good competition at the Enfield Open meet, everyone hightailed it back to the presentation evening at Mount Grace School, where the Chef was already cooking the food, and Adie was grooving to his tunes!

Everyone had a great time, and it was great to see so many people there. You can see all the photos here

John managed 2nd in the 100m fly (in a lifetime PB!), 3rd in the 50 Fly, and 6th in the 100 Free.

Leighton Buzzard Development Gala

Well done to the PBSC team that swam in the Leighton Buzzard SC Development Gala. In fact the performance of the team was so good that we picked up 12 speeding tickets during the 42 events, 13 1st place finishes, six 2nd places and the team finished in 3rd place overall.  The fact that our swimmers picked up a speeding ticket meant that the team did not score any points but Coaches Chris and Lauren were very pleased that the swimmers swam so well and were very happy to accrue so many speeding tickets!” , “A big thank you to all parents / guardians and Club Officials for supporting the event
