Winter Regional Champs

Winter Regional Chloe

Ten swimmers competed last weekend at the ASA East Region Winter Short Course Championships. This was an open competition with no age groups so it was a very good opportunity for our swimmers to gain experience at a high level competition.

The Modernian Swimming Club was established by Charlie Wilson in 1965. Charlie had coached at all levels from grass roots through to the National Squad. Interest in the club grew and it soon became apparent there was a need for the club to expand and Teaching, Bridging, Junior, Senior, Masters and Life saving groups were developed. Modernian SC became Bedfordshire's premier swimming club.
