Regional Success for Hull Swimmers – November 6th – 8th
Just weeks after competing at the Yorkshire Winter Competition, Kingston Upon Hull swimmers made waves again at the Northeast Regional Championships at Ponds Forge in Sheffield earlier this month.
Waiting a long time between races, overcoming personal challenges, and competing against some of the best swimmers in the region is not easy but provides invaluable experience for the future. There were fantastic swims across the board with an array of personal best times, top-ten placements and even some medals.

It is much harder to achieve a top-10 placement in the open-age category but all of Kingston’s older swimmers swam to a very high standard.
Once again, KUHSC swimmers faced some very tough competition but made their mark as members of the premier swimming club in the area. Director of Swimming and former Olympic Coach Russ Barber, and Head Coach Tom Rhodes are building on this success and the future looks very bright for Kingston Upon Hull Swimming Club.
