The Regional Age Groups Competition is an annual event in each region with the aim of bringing local talent together within artistic swimming to compete in specific age categories including teams, duets and solos.

And the first part of the event involves individual participants being scored on their ‘figures’ which are individual moves performed in the water judged by a qualified panel.

Head Coach Hannah Secher said: “I am really pleased with how the whole club performed, supported each other and showed progress.

“This is the first competition of the season and is a great way to try out new routines, gain experience and set goals for the rest of the season ahead.”

Rugby Artistic Swimming are entering a busy period for the club with Regional Junior and Senior Championships and Master’s as well as Swim England National Age Groups approaching over the next month.
