What a brilliant weekend it was for Bexley Swimming Club! Not only did we have 18 teams representing BSC at Crystal Palace in the Kent Relay Championships, we had a large number of our younger swimmers competing at Thanet, many of them for the first time.
Well done to all our swimmers who took part in Round Two of the Tudor League. We had a fantastic time, lots of fun and to top the night off we not only won the Cannon Race, Bexley came 1st!!!
This year our swimmers demonstrated an impressive display of talent, will and determination to drive Bexley Swimming Club forward and show everyone that we may be a small club, but we have a big heart and a bigger bite!
Big birthday celebrations for Sam, our Head Coach!!! He even had a swim…….Happy Birthday Sam!
Congratulations to Beth, Andy and Mike on passing their J1 assessments at last weekend’s Dartford & Erith Fireworks meet. Congratulations also to Richard who is now a qualified J2. Thank you to all of our officials and volunteers for all their hard work and dedication to the club.

This Sunday, George takes on the huge task of running the 2019 London Marathon. Our fundraising pot is currently looking healthy but we would still be very grateful if you could spare a few pounds – it really will help the Club.
