Telopea Swim Club - now in our 53rd year

Telopea Swim Club 50th Logo

Telopea celebrated 50 years in 2014.

Our big anniversary weekend was on the 28-30 November 2014. It kick started with the Reunion Spit Roast & Get Together on the evening of Friday 28 November at the Manuka Pool- this is where it all started in 64’. Ross, a previous senior squad swimmer and past captain took on some of the current senior squad, hoping to prevent his past records being broken. A few records were broken by the currrent senior squad - but many remained intact.

Then it was on to the main event, the 50th Anniversary Dinner, which was held at Southern Cross Club, Woden on Saturday 29 November 2014. Our thanks go to Tim Gavel who was the MC for the evening. Entertaining and inspiring speeches were given by Peter Freney, Bob Hilton the first club captain, and our Olympian Angela Woodward (Kennedy).

The weekend finished on Sunday 30th November 2014 with a picnic and BBQ at Telopea Park Manuka where it all started.

Our thanks goes to those who travelled from afar to attend this weekend. Special mention to the organising committee - Scott, Marcia, Rebecca, Maria, Jessica and Liam - who worked tirelessly to make this weekend a great success.
