…and Happy 50th Birthday to the Sherwood Sharks!

Last Friday night the Sharks celebrated 50 years as a Swim Club in the local Community. The Shark Tank as we now know it, was built in 1967 at cost of over 10 000 pounds, with funds raised by the local community. The swim club began the following year in 1968.  From its humble beginnings, the Sharks has grown to a thriving community of over 100 swimmers who gather weekly to compete, make new friends and have a lot of fun along the way. The success of our club would not have been possible without the past and present Committee members, coaches, P&C, school and most importantly, the enthusiasm from our swimmers and their families…so thank you!

Our celebrations kicked off with some racing before parents joined in the action, dusting off the goggles to race their children in the relays. This was followed by a fabulous birthday cake accompanied by some rowdy singing from the crowd. We topped off the night with a free swim and disco with some truly memorable limbo and dance moves from the kids. Thanks to all for a fun night and maybe we will see some of you back in the Tank for the 100 year celebration!
