Swim club on revival campaign

THE Babale Swim Club used the Grand Prix National Shortcourse competition in Nadi yesterday to revive the decade old club.

The swimming competition held at the Nadi Club had seven clubs from Suva and Nadi participating.

Babale Swim Club, which was formed in 2003, fielded 31 swimmers, some of who were former members marking their return.

Club membership and administration officer David Dugu said after 2010, they lost most of their members to work and other commitments.

He said the club was in a revival process with about 50 registered members.

Dugu said they had a mixture of young and matured swimmers in the club.

He said their main goal in the short course season which started with yesterday's meet was to have fun and to enjoy the spirit of competition.

"Many are competing for the first time. Others are returning after being out of the pool for five, some even 10 years," Dugu said.

"This marks the beginning of Babale's journey into a bright and successful future. It is not going to be easy, but it is going to be a challenge that Babale is ready for."

The club was formed by head coach Jennifer Liew with Fanny Simpson and Tony Wong.
