Alumni Gala – it’s been a good half-decade

gala8

they’ve returned (and they are still pretty fast in the water!)

What a night! UCLSC is half a decade old this year but our swimmers are always looking young (maybe it’s the chlorine).

To celebrate, we’ve brought everyone out to Hackney for a gala:

gala1

it’s not exactly Hackney but we’ve got the entire pool (and 2 very bored lifeguards).

Here are some pictures of how the night went swimmmingly well!

have they been training????????? they are fast!

And post-gala, we fall back on tradition for a nice BYOB curry. Now, that’s a lot of swimmers in one tiny curry house.

how many swimmers can you fit in a curry house? 

MAJOR CREDITS to Ellen for organising this event and making sure we all get our curry. Insane feat.

gala7

we just needed more reasons to eat cake 

And HUGE THANKS to Gabi for getting the club our first NON-WEARABLE MERCH – A WATER BOTTLE! We are selling them at £3 in 2 colours and they are stylish af. Ideal for pres if you need it! What are you waiting for???
