Ipswich Swimming Club held their 16th Junior Open Meet at Crown Pools and the event ran extremely smoothly.

Over 300 swimmers took part, representing 25 different clubs.

The day was split into three sessions, starting at 8.30am and roughly finishing at 8.30pm with most swimmers competing in all sessions. The ten year olds were competing in 50m races with finals held during the same session, this was the same for the eleven to sixteen year olds who were competing in 100m events so by the end of the evening there were some very exhausted children.

There were some fantastic times achieved with swimmers, especially the younger ones, knocking many seconds off their personal best times.
