The club are extremely excited to announce that there are new starting blocks now installed at the Mountbatten Centre!
The blocks are high standard type Swiss Timing OSB14 With Relay Break Detection System (RBD) which measure reaction times off the blocks. They also come with removable backstroke start ledges which bring an advantage to our backstroke swimmers.
The first 8 blocks have now been installed and our Chairman Charlotte Budd was there to see them being put in. They were tested out at the recent Hampshire County Championships – our medallists certainly felt the benefit of the improved starts looking at the medal tally!
The remainder of the blocks at pool A end will be installed well in time for our Easter Meet which is now open for entries.
