|Swim England National Awards||We've won the Silver Runner's Up Award for the Swim England National Club of the Year.
It's an absolutely amazing achievement for a Club the size of ours to receive such fantastic recognition really is an incredible accomplishment.
It's testament to the work put in by Chris and his coaching team, the behind the scenes helpers and volunteers and of course, the fantastic swimmers who work hard all year round and get the results and achievements in increasing numbers, that has meant the national recognition that we've received today.
Well done to everyone who is part of our amazing Club.
See pictures from the event here and here. Some very proud coaches there - and who can blame them!

There are two payment options for the session:-
This is a great opportunity for those swimmers wanting an extra coached session that, at present, we cannot offer at Altrincham. If you do attend, please just let us know so we can assess how well the session is used by Altrincham swimmers.
Please note that there will be no Friday morning sessions available during December 2019 due to refurbishment works being carried out at Urmston Leisure Centre.
