Annually, the Ponds Forge International Centre plays host to the National Team Championships where all the County Teams from England, along with the 4 Area teams from Scotland and 2 from Wales compete Short-course (25m) in 2 divisions against each other for the title of National County Team Champions.
Shropshire are in Division 2 and this year were competing against 15 other teams, with all the teams hoping to gain one of the 4 promotion places to Division 1. Shrewsbury had 7 representatives in the team, with 4 of them making their Shropshire debuts. Despite the high and tough level of competition, they all performed to their best on the day and helped earn points for the team, so well done to all.
The Shrewsbury swimmers in the Shropshire team were:
Michael Doyle: 16/17yrs 100m breast and Medley Team
Daniel Grindley: 14/15yrs 100m Breast and Medley team
Woody Goodall: 14/15yrs 100m Back and Medley team

The 2nd annual SASC Open Meet at Wolverhampton proved to be extremely popular once again, with the Meet being full weeks in advance, with teams from across the region and beyond. The Meet was a huge success, both in the pool and out due to the incredible job done by the organising team and the volunteers assisting on the day.
In the pool, the club had a huge number of swimmers entering multiple events over the 4 sessions, with a pleasing number of younger entrants.
Being early in the season, the swimmers focus was not on best times, but this didn’t stop them delivering some awesome performances, with many of them actually recording new PB’s with some strong and mature racing. There were simply too many strong swims to name them all, but all of the team were able to take several positives away from the Meet to set them up well for the rest of the season. Between the swimmers there were a number of medals won and also Jack Males, Eloise Sneddon and Lucy Fairbanks all won top swimmers awards in their respective age groups.
Great job by the swimmers and the event team. Well done all!!
