Full Results

Gemma, Jodie and Katie W all competed at the British National Championships held in Glasgow at the end of July competing against the top 24 swimmers in Britain.
The following week Gemma Jodie and Sam were in action at the English Nationals in Sheffield. See the attachment for all the details.
Belgian Nationals
Emma D did TSC proud at the Belgian Championships at the Piscine Olympique in Genk in July. In her first ever national competition, Emma had qualified to swim in two events during the weekend meet. On the Saturday Emma stormed home to win a silver medal in the 100m backstroke and backed that up on the Sunday by placing 26th in the 100m freestyle.
Emma thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience of competing abroad and was absolutely thrilled to come home with her medal. Well done Emma!

New Technology - Wireless training headsets
Following a successful bid for funding from The Ashfords Foundation, TSC has taken delivery of our Jukes wireless headsets. The headsets allow our coaches to communicate directly with their swimmers while they are still training in the water without the need for any shouting. Many thanks to the Ashfords Foundation for their generosity and support.


Club Mascot
Congratulations to all four finalists in the Design a Club Mascot competition. The quality of the entries was extremely high and it was a very difficult decision for the judges to choose the overall winner. In the end the verdict went to Cadie Y for her impressive (and slightly scary) Tiverton Tiger Shark. Who knows where the design will feature first?
Swim England Talent Pathway
TSC is very proud of Emma D who has been selected to take part in the South West Regional Development Programme following her successful campaign at this year's Regional Championships. The programme is part of the overall Swim England Talent Pathway which aims to identify, develop and nurture the best swimmers.
Well done Emma!
