Herts Masters Championships back at Hemel Hempstead


On Sunday, Stevenage hosted the Herts Masters Championships at Hemel Hempstead. This was the first time the competition has been hosted since 2019 and great to see Hertfordshire teams competing once again .

Seventeen swimmers from the Hemel Masters squad competed against local clubs including Berkhamsted, Bishops  Stortford, Hatfield, Stevenage, Potters Bar, Ware, Hertford, Bushey, Hoddesdon and the mighty St Albans, with a team of thirty swimmers.

The Hemel Hempstead team worked hard and finished in an amazing 2nd place on 446 points, with St Albans Masters finishing on 616 and Bishop
Stortford on 212.  Several swimmers were either competing for the first time, competing in new events or competing after a long break, so this was a fantastic achievement.

After a great afternoon of swimming, the team secured 57 Age Group PB’S, 55 Podium spots and 14Club Records.  The highest point scoring swimmers were Bev McKenna and Oli Burrough, closely followed by Jo Lee-Pearce and Nathan Whiting. Club Records were achieved by Shane Coulson, Kevin McKenna, Jo
Lea-Pearce, Bev McKenna, Dave Pirrie, Mark Ayres and Alberto Villa.

Fantastic Work Team Hemel!
