Arena League Round 1

The City of Newport Swimming club re-entered the National Swimming Arena League this year for the first time in 5 years. On Saturday 14th October we travelled to Hutton Moor to compete in the first round. For those of you who have never witnessed an Arena League it is a very fast and furious competition, completing 50 events, which are a mix of relays and individuals, in about 2 hours. Newport came away from the 1st round with a stylish win, beating 2nd place by in excess of 100 points, winning 38 out of 50 events.
 
The second round will also be at Hutton Moor on Saturday 11th November, where we hope to display another dominant performance to put us in a strong position for the final where we will fight for promotion to the first Division.
