On Sunday 9th July,

More than 130 RASCALS swimmers and their friends and families headed to Rutland Water for, what is becoming, our annual trip to the Aqua Park. It is the largest aqua park in the UK and we are incredibly lucky to have it on our doorstep.

There were some new inflatables this year and it was great to have the whole park solely for RASCALS use. Everyone who participated had a great time on the inflatables, sliding off, jumping from five-meter platforms and catapulting friends high into the air.

Once we had all dried off, we headed to the waterside for a picnic lunch. The weather was perfect for such a day and really added to the enjoyment. Following a lazy lunch, we organised a huge game of rounders and followed it up with a team building activity which required minimal physical effort, but some mental effort and communication! The heat had clearly affected some more than others!

Everyone had a great time and there’s already talk of a repeat trip next year.
