Aquavision won the London Cup second year in a row!

Well done to all the girls who attended the London Cup on Saturday.
Credit due to our girls and volunteer helpers and all the parents who attended the competition which ended with a lot of clinking of medals and winning the overall cup for this competition.
These competitions are a continual learning experience, and show in essence how the girls are able to work together and support each other to be the best that they can be in synchro.  Their achievements in this competition are a testament to this, bearing in mind that this was a first competition for some of our younger girls.
We are so proud of each and everyone of them.  So very very well done.
A-Q-U-A- AQUAVISION ALL THE WAY LET’S GO…….

No training tonight (16/05/18) at Frith Manor or Feel Good Centre.

Unfortunately due to circumstances outside of our control and that were unforeseeable there will be no training tonight at either Frith Manor or at the Feel Good Centre.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
