On Thursday 1 November 2007 the Maryon-Wilson Swimming Race
returned to the Eric Liddell Centre, Eltham. Two lengths of the 25 metres
pool is hard work for some of the less able of us.
After arriving we found that the Pool was
closed for the week! This was due to a Play being preformed in the evenings.
Eventually after we got the Caretaker, Bursar etc involved they opened up and
allowed us in...
Seven entered this year and we had two
heats and Darryl proved the strongest and fastest again. The handicap went to
Winners all - Mike (3rd ), Anne (1st), Darryl (1st),
Terri (2nd) & Ian (3rd)
Handicap winners - David (3rd), Mike (1st) & Terri
||In 1893 Sir Spencer Maryon-Wilson presented the
trophy to the Club for the encouragement of swimming. For last couple of
years the event has been held at West Wickham baths over two lengths. As well as the scratch race there is a
handicap event. All members are
encouraged to take part; any style, change of stoke allowed - you don't
even have to dive in!
