The Swimming Pool has also had more usage from the members as we now offer swimming pool membership free when members renew their subscriptions and also for new members. This promotional offer has worked well for the club and we hope this trend will continue. We started The Oval Swimming Academy this year which is managed by our coach L.V.Fernando.This has been a considerable success and we now have 43 registered students in the Academy. In addition we also have 2 private coaches and 5 schools utilising our pool facilities and this has also helped generate important revenue from the swimming pool.
In the All Island Public Schools Swimming Championships there was also considerable success for student members of the Club who are undergoing training at our Swimming Pool. In the Under 11 boys category Shivaji De Silva was placed first in the 50 metres Free Style and 50 metres Back Stroke events and also was placed second in the 100 metres Free Style Event. In the same category Kavin Weerasinghe was placed second in the 200 metres Individual Medley event and third in 50 metres Dolphin event. In the Under 9 boys category Dinal Weerasinghe was placed first in 200 metres Individual Medley event and second in both the 100 metres Free Style and 50 metres Dolphin events.
