We enjoyed a very successful Interclub 1 on the 28th of June. Kingfishers finished second thanks to being able to enter three relay teams! Just one more male swimmer and we could have had 4 teams. So remember—every swimmer helps!
Come along to Interclub 2 on the 14th of July and support our club. Don’t forget to nominate by the 28th of June.Read More
Congratulations to Bernadette Spears – Swimmer of the Month (Training) for September. To qualify Bernadette attended training over 6 times for the month. Altogether 8 swimmers attended 6 or more training sessions in September. Bernadette is pictured with Helen Haberfield receiving her award. With training back at Waterworld we are hoping for an increase in numbers at training and all those attending over 6 sessions will go in the draw for the October award.
A big THANK YOU to the Government of South Australia Office for Recreation and Sport.
The Tea Tree Gully Kingfishers Master Swimming Club was excited to receive a grant in Round 43 of the Active Club Program for a total of $5500.
This was to assist with Program and/or Equipment Funding.
We started with a NEW LOGO, a modern contemporary look to our beloved Kingfisher.
Then an overall revamp with the new logo.
A new website: ttgmastersswimming.com
New banners, magnetic posters, brochures etc. Finally, a great new club shirt!
We actively participated in an Active Aging promotion month last October at the ARC, home base for our winter training. We were able to pay for a coach to help and support many new swimmers in that time. We are grateful and ecstatic with our new look!Read More
