A Christmas message from our President, Paul Kendall

2021 has been yet another challenging year for our sport but despite the problems that have beset us, all of our clubs have strived to continue and develop. Though the frequency of events may have been reduced along with restricted support of families and friends in the spectators gallery, I am glad to say the spirit of competition has not been broken and the results have been every bit as exciting to see. I have been fortunate to witness first-hand our athletes in action at a number of regional and national events and have been immensely impressed by the standards achieved across the board. Congratulations are due to all athletes, coaches, clubs and families for the dedication and sacrifices made to achieve this success. May this continue throughout 2022.

I would like to wish all Swim England East Region members and their families a very Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year.

Paul Kendall, President
