Swinton Swimming Club, who this year have a team of swimmers ranging from the ages of 8 years old to senior swimmers, have been participating in a 2- day gala which is held at Cappenberg in Lünen, Germany, which is Swinton’s twin-town, for almost every two years since the year 2000 to try and bring home the trophies.

In previous visits to this gala the club have won many medals for individual and team events and their trophies are displayed proudly in their trophy cabinet at their home in the Pendlebury Leisure Centre

SCC is a self-funded club via quiz nights and raffles, and although it does not receive any grants, this year we at Cloud53 have sponsored the club and supplied the team with their stylish polo shirts.

Cloud53 wish the Swinton Swimming Club the best of luck when they fly out on the 4th of July and hope they can bring home more trophies to add to their collection!
