Thirteen RASCALS swimmers competed at the Rykneld Open at Sharley Park recently, and had a very enjoyable, successful meet. Taking part were Hannah Minshull, Anna Booth, Poppy Greenwood, Scarlett Swift, Freya Layton, Lizzy Howe, Travis Dawes, George Whittle, Noah Tannahill, Harry Quinn, Joel Tannahill and Andrew Parr.
There were wins for George Whittle (50m breaststroke and 100m individual medley), Noah Tannahill (50m butterfly), Joel Tannahill (100m butterfly) Freya Layton (100m butterfly and 100m individual medley), Lizzy Howe (100m individual medley), and Andrew Parr (50m freestyle)
It was extremely encouraging to see the number of personal best times posted over the day, 37 out of 50 swims resulted in personal best times, which was a fantastic achievement and confirms the continued improvement of the swimmers under the coaching of Glenn Fisher and his team. Congratulations to you all.

Round 2 Draw has taken place; see who we will be swimming against here:
Our very own former RASCAL Molly Renshaw has been selected for the Olympic swimming team, and will be competing in Rio. This follows her performance at the British Championships in Glasgow last week, when she broke her own British record in the 200m breaststroke.
Many congratulations Molly, everyone at RASCALS is so proud of you for this wonderful achievement.
This year, the Midlands Championships format has been changed - instead of a combined East and West Midlands combined event, the East region will be holding a stand alone event without the West..... There are Youth and Age Group events, both long course, both age at the end of the year:
The Age Group event will be held at Corby on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th May. This is for swimmers aged 11-13 years, closing date Wednesday 11th May.
Please visit the E Mids website for more information, and to check if you have met the qualifying times: www.asaem.org.uk, then check the 'event entry' page.

Current child protection legislation demands that anyone wishing to use photographic equipment – including mobile phones – must obtain permission from the leisure centre.
Anyone failing to obtain permission will be asked to leave and may be reported to the leisure centre and/or the police. Previous actions of this nature have resulted in prosecution.
R.A.S.C.A.L.S. have no wish to be kill-joys but we have to respect the law and also the leisure centres' own rules. Most importantly of all, we must put the safety and comfort of all the children first.
