Biddulph Academy Director of Swimming, Peter Abbott said “As a club, we’ve had fantastic year for the Biddulph Academy Squad. We’ve had our best year so far in terms of the number of swimmers performing at a County, Regional and National level. It’s fantastic to see our Biddulph swimmers progressing and being competitive with swimmers from the big city clubs. And to top off this great season, we’ve won the North West Arena Division One League”
“We have some great established swimmers now who regularly represent the County and Region, we also have swimmers on the West Midland and England Talent pathways. What’s more encouraging is we have some really strong younger swimmers coming through who will be as competitive as any team in the Premier Division.” “We have also worked hard with the Biddulph Academy Squad, by encouraging local swimmers to join us on morning training sessions to improve their performance.”
