Walthamstow Hall Hosts Largest IAPS Gala


Walthamstow Hall pool was the venue for the biggest of the IAPS swimming galas on Friday morning. In total more than 211 competitors from 14 school teams, including our own Junior School Year 5 and 6 swimmers, took part in over 60 races.

In total 30 such time trial rounds will take place across the country involving over 3,000 competitors. The time results for this gala will not be available until all of the national trials have been completed but the Walthamstow Hall squad swam very well in both their individual and relay races.

Speaking from the side of the pool, Head of the Junior School, Mrs Austin congratulated the Walthamstow Hall squad on their 'brilliant swimming' describing them as 'torpedoes in the water'!
