Evesham Swimming Club is making waves

Liam Moakes 23rd Jun, 2015 Updated: 20th Oct, 2016

EVESHAM Swimming Club made big changes at its annual AGM as lots of new faces joined the committee.

Most notable was the appointment of Andrew McKenna, who started as a poolside helper, moved on to become a Level 1 coach and has now taken the role of chairman.

One of Andrew’s first successes is to welcome Richard Goode to the club as its technical director. Richard will be working with the existing coaching team to help and support the swimmers.

He joins with years of experience and is very excited about the future of Evesham Swimming Club. His immediate goal is to improve the swimming technique of all of the members involved in the club.

Evesham Swimming Club is always on the lookout for new swimmers so, if you are looking for a club where you can get support and guidance to improve swimming technique in a warm and friendly environment with hard-working and supportive coaches, Evesham Swimming Club is the place for you.

Currently, it is offering free trials to all new swimmers, so come and see what Evesham Swimming Club has to offer. To find out more contact Andrew McKenna on 07793 283292 or e-mail membership.evesham.swim.club@gmail.com.

ESC would like to express its huge gratitude to Mirren Brodie, the widely respected and much-loved outgoing chairwoman, who has been involved in the club for many years and is of course the mother of one of Evesham Swimming Club’s finest exports, Cameron Brodie.

Cameron attended the British Championships in April and became British champion in the 200m fly. He has since then completed one leg of the Marie Nostrum (international meet where they compete over three weekends in three different cities) and is doing its second leg in Barcelona this weekend.

Following that he then flies to South Korea to compete in the World University Games for Scotland in July before heading to San Antonio in August to compete in the American National Championships.

Everyone at the club hopes Mirren now has more time to enjoy watching Cameron win at the highest level.
