Swim­mers brave cold con­di­tions

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - SPORT -

THE South­side Pen­rhos Wes­ley Swim­ming Club hosted its first meet of the sum­mer long-course swim­ming sea­son on Oc­to­ber 15 in weather re­sem­bling the mid­dle of win­ter and not the start of spring.

Swim­mers braved heavy rain and squally winds to com­pete in a va­ri­ety of races at the Wes­ley Col­lege swim­ming pool.

Par­ent vol­un­teers cooked the post-meet bar­be­cue and recorded swim­ming times hud­dled un­der um­brel­las.

The club is a com­mu­nity based A-Grade swim­ming club cater­ing for stu­dents in the lo­cal area, not just Pen­rhos or Wes­ley Col­lege.

The name of the club is based on the two pools where swim­mers train, and it holds club and in­ter­club com­pe­ti­tion meets through­out the year.

The club wel­comes new mem­bers. To join or find out more check visit https://sspw. swim­ming.org.au.

Amelie Szczecin­ski (12) is at the fin­ish.

Swim­mers work on their starts dur­ing their warm-up rou­tine.
