Swimming Calendar


Our U9, U10 and U11 swimmers competed against Holmewood House School on 10th November at Holmewood House School.  The girls swam to success in closely-run races at times, with the final points reading 105 for Walthamstow Hall, and 82 points for Holmewood House. There were first places in the U9 age-group for Freya (Back) and Willow (Breastroke). The U11 winners were: Amelia (Backstroke), Alice (Breastroke) and Gabriella (Butterfly). We also had 1st places in our U9 Freestyle relay, our U10 Medley relay and in our U11 Freestyle and Medley relay teams.

On Tuesday 18th November our U10 and U11 swimmers competed at home against Kent College.  Our girls gave an excellent performance in all categories to a slightly depleted Kent College team, as unfortunately some of their Year 6 swimmers were unwell.  The overall score was 219 to Walthamstow Hall and 121 points to Kent College.  There were first places for U10s in Backcrawl for Rachel and Ann, for Harmony (Breastroke) and Elspeth (Butterfly), and for U11s in Breastroke for Alice and Mariella, in Butterfly for Gabriella and Emily, and in Frontcrawl for Amelia.  First places were earned in both categories of our U10 and U11 Medley Relays and in our U10 Freestyle Relays.  We were also delighted to secure a 1st place in the Squadron Relay. 

On 2nd December the U10 and U11 girls were joined by U8 and U9 to compete against Derwent Lodge at their pool at the Schools at Somerhill.  It was a very close and exciting match with the final score in favour of Derwent Lodge with 172 points, and Walthamstow Hall with 167 points.  There were first places for Grace (Breastroke), Katherine (Frontcrawl), Amelia and Katie (Backstroke), and for Gabriella (Butterfly).  We also had first places in our U11 Freestyle Relay and our U9, U10 and U11 Medley Relays.

Congratulations to everyone on excellent performances on our swimming competition calendar!
