On Saturday 10th June, Anne Reah, the Swim England North East President, Sue Prasad the Swim England North East Region President, Stuart Walker the Yorkshire President and Iain Young Northumberland and Durham President all attended the Northumberland and Durham Team Swimming Championships at the Sunderland Aquatics centre.
The championships saw clubs from across Northumberland and Durham competing against each other over a range of age groups and swimming events.
Speaking about the championships, Anne said ‘It was a pleasure to see such enthusiasm from the swimmers at the championships and it was great to see how happy everyone looked’. On her time at the championships, Sue added ‘We have had a great welcome and thoroughly enjoyed our day. The swimming has been enjoyable to watch h and the officials looked smart and professional’.
Stuart added ‘There has been fantastic encouragement from the crowd for the teams and swimmers and it has been lovely to see the support the swimmers have for each other in their teams. We have been made to feel very welcome at the championships, thank you for inviting us along’.
Having all four presidents at a competition is a rare occasion and the Northumberland and Durham swimming association would like to thank all the presidents for attending the championships in Sunderland.
