The Royal School travelled recently to Matlock in Derbyshire to compete in Derventio eXcel’s Level 2 meet. With a powerful 40+ swimmers in attendance the team really stood out throughout the two day meet. The Elite Squad attended the ‘Make your Escape’ escape rooms before the meet and had a fantastic time!
Top swim on day 1 came from Matthew Richards who broke the British Age Group Record in the 100Free with a 49. swim and awesome skills and speed on show from the entire team throughout the weekend. New Elite Royal swimmers- Alexandra Barclay, Oliver Duckworth, Finn Nichol, Luke Skelding all took up the opportunity to show what fine additions to the squad they are. The National Development Squad led by Dave Painter absolutely smashed their Pb’s and stepped up to make some big gains.
