STOWMARKET swimmers are gearing up for the first session in their three-round club championships.

This weekend the squads will take to the pool – against each other – to bid for trophy success and a number of personal bests.

Stowmarket has had a particularly successful year, with many swimmers proving themselves a first class act at Open Meet competitions through the region.

They will now look to test themselves alongside their club-mates, while setting out to break many of the long-held records that Stowmarket has.

Dozens of youngsters are expected to get involved with the three-stage event over the coming weeks, while parents and friends are expected to be providing a much-needed cheerleading team at the home pool.

Paul Prowse, spokesman for the swimming club, said: "We're looking forward to a really great Championship and hope that it will provide a good but fun competitive platform to those who have not been involved in galas previously.

"It's always well attended and with the three week stint it will give competitors a good chance to recover and to be on good form for their races."

The three sessions will take place on Saturday, November 9, Friday, November 15 and Saturday, November 16.

A presentation evening will be held early in the New Year.
