TAIN Amateur Swimming Club are continuing with their successful year.

After their great start to the year at the HST New Year meet, they are managing to keep their good luck going. The Tain Swimfest held recently in Inverness saw a large number of swimmers from all over the north compete for the team prize, which went to a very strong team from Wick.

Tain came in a very respectable second, with Skye Dolphins coming in third.

Many Tain swimmers went home with medals and most with at least one new Personal Best.

Although the Swimfest is a great day for the younger competitors, it was also good to see two of Tain’s more senior swimmers make the trip home from University to compete – Chris Grubb (pictured with the senior boys relay team) and Cara Frazer both had some great swims and were a huge support to their younger team mates. The Swimfest was not the only meet where Tain swimmers were making their presence felt though, as Polly Melville recently had a very successful North District Meet, setting herself some very fast new Personal Bests.

Liam Troxler, Ruaridh Oliver-Jones, Michelle McMenemy and Hope Gordon, all had good swims at the recent Forres Bluefins meet.

For Hope this came just after the British Shortcourse in Sheffield where Scotland came second and Hope took home six Golds.

Tain also had a great fund-raising day, bag packing in the Tain Co-op recently. They all enjoyed this and were delighted with the £500 raised on the day.

The club has seen its numbers grow recently but new members are always welcome, so if you would like to be the next Hannah Miley or Robbie Renwick then go along and give it a try.
