Tavistock and Area Swimming Gala

On Thursday 21st April 2016 Bickleigh Down’s Swimming Squad took part in the Tavistock and Area Inter-Schools Swimming Gala. The Gala was held at Meadowlands Swimming Pool with 12 primary schools from the Tavistock area taking part.  The children competed in individual events and relays in freestyle, breaststroke, backcrawl and butterfly.  We took a strong team with some very talented, determined swimmers and placed first in the competition! Congratulations to all who took part!

Plymouth Leander Primary Swimming Gala

On Friday 10th June, Bickleigh Down Swimming Team took part in the Plymouth Leander Primary Swimming Gala. The children swam in 15 races and we gained an impressive 10 firsts resulting in us winning the Gala overall. Our children were a great team not only showing very competent swimming strokes but also encouraging one another throughout the event. Well done!
