The closest and most exciting gala of the year so far took place at Woking Pool in the Park on Saturday 9th December , where Woking won the final round of the Arena Round 3 gala.
Woking were up against some tough opposition, among the teams of Beckenham, Portsmouth Northsea, Amersham, Winchester and Sutton and Cheam. Woking, after a slow start, were soon vying for a top place position with 1st to 4th places all being very close. Only a few points or so ever separated Woking from Amersham, Portsmouth and Beckenham, with the top position at one point being shared between Beckenham and Woking. With only one point between the teams going into the final session of relays, Woking had all to swim for. The whole team did not disappoint and, after many close finishes and amazing Woking swims, Woking were finally awarded 1st place.
Huge thanks from the coaches for those swimmers who travelled far to represent their club, and for all those who once again gave their all for Team Woking! Awarding Swimmers of the Night was a tough decision for coaches … congratulations to :
