Thank you to everyone who turned out for the Hackney Christmas Party in Hackney Marshes last night - it was wonderful to see so many old and new Club members come along for some great food, and the presentations of our Club Championship, Swimmer of the Year and Petchey Awards. Huge thanks to the volunteers who organised the evening, and to all the parents and swimmers who attended. For those of you who missed it (or who just want to relive the moment) you can download Rick's speech here.
After three tough rounds Hackney Aquatics Club have secured a well-deserved promotion to the First Division of the Arena League! We won the Final by an amazing 40 points against some tough competition. You can read the full report of the competition here. Well done to every single swimmer who swam across the three rounds, and huge congratulations to the team and the coaches.
