Here at YourThurrock, we are always looking for stories that acknowledge and celebrate the achievements happening within the borough. Therefore, you can imagine our delight when we heard about the growing success of the Thurrock Swimming Club at Blackshots Leisure Centre.
During our visit, we were simply overwhelmed by the dedication and determination shown by the members who attend the club. However, their 5am starts and committed training sessions have been rewarded with a variety of brilliant achievements within the competitive swimming arena.
Then again, the Thurrock Swimming Club is not just for the super-speedy swimmers who want to partake in professional competitions. For this club also welcomes recreational swimmers who just want to pop along for a leisurely swim.
Overall, the main aim behind the club is to encourage as many people to start swimming in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle. It is with this reason in mind that I believe everyone should support the Thurrock Swimming Club and the positive impact they are having upon the community’s fitness.
For more information on how you can join or support the Thurrock Swimming Club contact Club Secretary, Hazel Day on 07725352742 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
