Yesterday, Barnet Copthall held its annual Middle Distance Development (MDD) Meet. The meet was held over 2 long sessions (sorry! however if I'd accepted all entries we could have gone on to midnight!) and we had representatives from 7 visiting clubs. We were pleased to welcome: Berkhamsted Sports Centre, Chesham, City of Milton Keynes, Griffins of Enfield, Hertsmere Flyers, Hillingdon Swimming Club and Wycombe District.
As anticipated in the last news item, Suzi Lowi has passed her Level 4 to qualify for the competitive strand of Nationals in December. During the same assessment session, Rachel Harris passed her Level 3. Well done to both girls!

On 29th September a 'Multi-Regional Synchonised Swimming Age Group Competition' was held in Bristol involving swimmers from London, South-East and South-West Regions.
