Swimming Gala v The Downs Malvern
Abberley welcomed The Downs, Malvern, for the first gala of our season. Lots of preparation had been going on for weeks to get the children ready, some having never swam in a gala before. Excitement was at peak level!
From the off it was clear that our swimmers were going to give it their best and perform way beyond expectations. Lots of cheering from both teams once the whistle had blown showed fabulous team spirit from both sides.
Abberley were really pushed to their limit on a few of the races and a couple of close finishes. The U9 children on both teams swam fabulously and did not seem daunted at all to be racing for the first time.
I was very pleased to see all our strokes being swam well and skills being perfected. Abberley won quite convincingly but the whole atmosphere was of all the children enjoying their swimming and camaraderie was fabulous.
I am extremely pleased with how they all executed their swims. Well done all of you, you did yourselves proud!
