New competition anti-wave ropes were presented to Sedgefield 75 Swimming Club and Newton Aycliffe Leisure Centre as part of a project supported by GAMP via the Neighbourhood Budget allocation of Councillor Joan Gray and Councillor John Clare.
The provision of competition anti wave ropes will improve the conditions of the pool water allowing for the general public to swim alongside swimming clubs while the Club   will benefit with more accuracy  and improved  swimming times.
It will allow the reproduction of  competition conditions helping develop  swimmers even more.
Sedgefield 75 Swimming club currently have various national champions as well as representatives in the Junior Great Britain Squad.
The introduction of these new lane ropes will be a huge help to both club development and improvements to the comfort of the public when swimming.
Both Newton Aycliffe Leisure Centre and Sedgefield 75 Swimming Club are extremely grateful for the support by Councillors  Gray and Clare and Great Aycliffe & Middridge Partnership
