Becoming top club in Cheshire in the 2024 Cheshire County Swimming Championships. We topped the points table in the Senior & Junior events and were also ‘Most Improved Club’ for 16 & Under. We achieved two Top Girls in their age, and Top Girl overall; one of whom also set a new Cheshire record for the 1500m in the 12yr old category. The club achieved 66 gold medals, 58 silver, and 51 bronze with just 34 swimmers, beating much larger clubs across Cheshire to win most points overall. This makes them the first club in Wirral to achieve this at a County competition.

We have swimmers of all ages on Swim England development initiatives and pathways. A large number of our members were selected for the recent County Development Day. We have swimmers on Regional Development pathways. Two swimmers have been selected for the National age development camp and one for the British Swimming endurance initiative.
