Congratulations to the team who represented the club in our first foray into the National Arena league and came away with a decisive first place, winning 32 of the 50 events on the night.

3rd Round - 14th December
Just before the Christmas break our Arena league team took part in the final gala of the current season.  In our first year back in the National Arena League, we gained an excellent second position behind an extremely  strong Hillingdon Team.  The atmosphere at the pool was electric with both swimmers and  spectators being in great voice supporting our swimmers throughout the gala . This excellent team performance, where every point counted,  gave us 2nd position overall in the league and gained us promotion to Division 1 for next season just ahead of a very strong Luton team.

2012-13 season

Essex Swimming League

The club entered two teams in the Essex League for 2012/13.  One team competed in Division One and the other in Division Four.  Swimmers cannot switch between teams during the season but may change age groups between galas as the competition is run on an ‘age as at date of gala’ basis.

Division Four - Champions!  
Our Division four team successfully polished off their campaign with another decisive victory at our home pool in Basildon to end the season undefeated and collect the 2012-13 season trophy.

Division One - Runners Up!
Round 1:  With a weakened team due to other gala commitments BPSC opened the season by finishing in third place.
Round 2: a In a tightly fought 2nd round gala at Braintree, the Division 1 team came out in a very creditable 2nd place overhauling Killerwhales (who had claimed second place in the first round gala in February).  After this gala BPSC were resting just out of second place based on swimming points only with two more galas left in this division.
Round 3:  A confident performance saw BPSC overhaul league leaders Romford and gain ground by winning the third round in this four gala competition.
Round 4: BPSC rounded off the season in style by winning the final gala of this year’s Essex League competition and finishing in overall 2nd place with two wins out of four galas.  See Essex League Report for details.
