We are delighted to announce that Bristol Penguins are Swim England Swimming Club of the Year. This is an outstanding achievement for the club following a couple of very successful seasons developing ourselves as a community club as well as improving performance. Well done and thank you to everyone who works and volunteers at Penguins and those partners who work with us.
Chairperson of Bristol Penguins, Ben Mullen, explained that a ‘combination and culmination of everyone’s effort’ lead to them winning the award.
The club have formed excellent partnerships with Clifton College Swim Academy and Badminton School around the provision of teaching and coaching in return for pool access.
“Another thing that’s really important to us is developing people, not just swimmers, to help them become better people as they get older.”
