2017 County Championships – qualification process
Thursday, 20 October 2016 10:47
Hemel Hempstead currently has over 60 swimmers with times within the consideration/ qualifying parameters for the different age groups at Hertfordshire County 2017 Championships next January/February. The qualifying times can be found here, and details of those swimmers who already have a consideration time can be found here (but please see below for what holding a consideration time means). The depth of swimmers within HHSC achieving consideration and/or qualifying times is great for the club in showing our strength.

The qualifying window for Counties is open until Wednesday 14th December, although we will be submitting entries a few days before then.  Hemel Hempstead’s last chance qualifying meet is the Team Luton Development meet on the 11th December, and our closing date for entries for this meet is Sunday 23rd October.  We expect swimmers to be attending to achieve necessary requirements ; this will be your last chance to advance your current times and to potentially secure any new opportunities for the 2017 Hertfordshire County Championships.
Hemel's 103rd Birthday Open
Thursday, 20 October 2016 08:49
Hemel’s 103rd Birthday Open was celebrated in style with 270 swimmers from 13 clubs contributing to an exciting weekend of competition. Hemel swimmers excelled winning 87 gold medals, 158 silver and bronze medals, and setting over 330 personal best times. Two club open records and six age group records were broken. Congratulations to Watford SC who won the best visiting club award, and to Jack Spence and Alice Fender, both from Hemel, who won the skins competitions.
Swimmers of the month - September
Monday, 10 October 2016 08:16
We are really pleased to announce that Septembers swimmers of the month are Mia Maslen Wollington in Aquabears and Joe Kelly in Seals. Mia swam her first open gala at Epping Forest with some great swims in all her events. This is well deserved following on from her positive attitude in training. Joe Kelly has adjusted well to moving up to a harder group. He continuously pushes himself in training and is really working hard to improve his technique. Congratulations to them both. swimmer of the month - september 2016 - boy september 2016 - girl

Arena 2016 - round 1
Monday, 10 October 2016 07:45
A very exciting, very noisy and closely fought first round of the 2016 Arena League saw positions change dramatically throughout the evening. In the end Hemel finished fifth with only 36 points separating third from eighth. Congratulations to Jack Spence who won both his individual races, and to Jack Christie who won the 100 breast in a new open Club record time. There were 14 other top three finishes, with a special mention to Alice Fender who swam the crucial first event of the evening, the 200 IM, for the first time in an Arena competition and finished third despite swimming up an age group, with a new PB and setting a new age group record; all despite the start being reset five times because of technical problems.
Holly represents Herts
Saturday, 01 October 2016 12:37
Congratulations to Holly Robinson who was one of the Hertfordshire team in the recent Junior Inter-Couty competition at Luton.  Herts finished third on the night behind Essex and Suffolk, and Holly set two new Club records in her individual events, breaking her own record in the 50 breast, and setting a new record in the 50 back, breaking a record last set in 2009 by almost 2 seconds and becoming the first Hemel 10 yr old girl to swim under 40 seconds long course in the event.
Hemel hosts first 200 fly fest
Sunday, 25 September 2016 11:51
125 swimmers from nine clubs came together at Hemel last night with just one objective - to swim one of the hardest races in the swimmers' repertoire, a 200 fly!  Having just one event in a competition is highly unusual but the 200 fly is all too often the ugly duckling event, at best squeezed in at the end of a competition when swimmers are already tired, and with so few entrants the heats are hopelessly unbalanced, and at worst dropped for lack of interest.

Swimmers from Chesham, CoStA, Harpenden, Hemel, Putteridge, Stevenage, Tring, Watford and Wycombe, many of them swimming the event for the first time, enjoyed some really competitive heats and posted some fast times. Congratulations to Harrison Lees of Watford and Adel Zabrzewski of Chesham who were the fastest boy and girl on the night, and to Sam Gaines who smashed an eight year old Hemel Club record at the distance for 15 yr old boys.
