Welcome to Bottisham Swimming Club!

We are a friendly and competitive swimming club based just north of Cambridge, with about 100 swimmers aged between 8 and 21. We train at Bottisham and Impington Sports Centres, and compete at galas throughout the eastern region and beyond.

Our latest news appears below, or please click on the links for more information. Swimmers and parents please also check the board at Bottisham for latest news!

Club Kit Orders – by Friday please

We are about to place another order for club kit.  If you would like to order some please fill in the form here – swimmers tend to have t-shirts and hoodies, and adult helpers tend to prefer the polo shirts.  We suggest you order up a size as they come up quite small.  Please pass to a coach on Wednesday or Thursday or you can email them to me chair@bottishamswimclub.org.uk for sending on to Cathryn. Please include payment or pay by bank transfer using the reference [swimmer surname]/kit.  Thanks.

Time Trials Wednesday

Please remember that we are doing club time trials on Wednesday evening for C and B squads in preparation for the county development champs.  Parents, please come prepared to wield a stopwatch (we will supply the watches!) if requested!  Thank you.

JFL 2nd Round Newmarket – Gala Report

Saturday evening found the Bottisham JFL Team at Newmarket for the 2nd round, which we were hosting. We were up against teams from Boston, Deepings, Ely and Thetford.
Our small but determined team consisted of: Jack B, Josh V, Emily C, Eleanor, Freddy M, Matthew, Elana, Luna, Andrew, Freya, Justin, Livia, Phoebe and Weronika. Junior Coach Pippa was poolside as was Head Coach Karl – coping admirably with his jetlag.

We were also joined by some of our older swimmers: A massive thank you to Tara, who did the announcing on the night. Lauren, who kept the officials supplied with sweets and thank you to Sasha, who was assisting Tara on the officials table – you were all brilliant!

Thanks also to Guy – most of you won’t have seen him though.. Guy was inputting all the data on the night from his vantage point in the Tech Box, which is conveniently situated to the side of the start blocks.

More brilliant people who helped were our Dynamic Duo; Tracey and Janice, who  were on the admission table and sold raffle tickets.

Huge Thanks to our Bottisham officials on the night –  Suzy, Emma and Gordon. These events cannot run without officials so I am grateful that you could help.

And now to the important stuff…. the results!

We had an amazing 29 PB’s!!!!

A Wonderful One each for Livia, Phoebe and Jack B and Josh V. Both Phoebe and Jack B were first time JFL swimmers, and in Phoebe’s case, first ever swimming gala. Well done to all of you!

A Terrific Two for Elana, Eleanor, Freddy M and Matthew. Awesome efforts in races that I know you wouldn’t necessarily choose!

A Tremendous Three each for Emily, Freya and a slightly injured Weronika – we hope you are recovered now!

And A Fantastic Four for Andrew and Justin!!! What a night you had. Great work!

The next round will be on the evening of June 10th in Kings Lynn. Please make a note of the date. Invites will be going out soon.
