At the South East Regional Championships Maddie Evans became 100 Butterfly Regional Champion. Maddie also won silver in the 50m front crawl and 100m backstroke. Tom Ellershaw became 100 Breaststroke Regional Champion and is also now the 50m BK Regional U11/12 record holder. Tom also won silver in the 200m breaststroke.


At the Kent Boys’ Doubles, Sevenoaks A were winners and Sevenoaks B were runners up. Our Y9/10 side finished third while our Seniors finished third and fourth. Sevenoaks had the biggest representation of teams on the day and the organiser was particularly impressed by the Seniors who showed maturity and proactivity to organise their tournament.

At the ISL Round 1, Sevenoaks won 32 sets to finish first overall, with New Hall still to play. If successful, this should put our teams in the top division for the second round.
