There were many fantastic achievements by the large contingent of Maidenhead Marlins swimmers who competed at the Watford County Qualifying Meet over the weekend.
These excellent performances were consistent across all age groups and it was particularly encouraging to see that more than 90% of swims were lifetime best performances! Many swimmers also achieved their County and Regional qualifying times. Team spirit was also fantastic throughout the weekend with all cheering their teammates on in a highly competitive meet. Well done to all the swimmers who took part and it was great event to start the New Year off with success.
Well done to all the swimmers competing at the Thames Valley Junior League Round first round. Fantastic efforts all round and, again, a very exciting event with Maidenhead Marlins placing joint second with Reading with 201 points!
Especially exciting were the relays and all look forward to building on the great swims by both the A and B teams at Round 2 in Bracknell at the end of the month.

Happy New Year to all and best wishes for success in 2015
Well done again to the swimmers who attended the 3rd and final round of the National Arena Swimming League. The team swam really well to secure 4th place in a tightly contested gala at Waterlooville in December. The result meant that we finished 5th in Division One South. Very impressive to see all our swimmers perform consistently well across all age groups!
