Sharks seal promotion!
Sharks’ junior swimmers earned promotion to Nuneaton Junior League Division One after finishing a close second to Redditch in the Finals Gala held at Wolverhampton on Saturday evening.

The Junior League Squad, aged between 9 & 12, scored 219 point, finishing 8 points behind Redditch, but well ahead of 3rd placed Bromsgrove on 180 points.


The 54-team Nuneaton Junior League, which is split into 3 divisions, is spread around the Midlands area, and gives many of the younger swimmers the first opportunity of competitive swimming. In the final there were some excellent swims in a highly-charged atmosphere.
