THIRTY Boston Amateur Swimming Club swimmers travelled to Coventry to take part in the annual Graham Sykes Open Meet. The Meet gave some swimmers the opportunity to compete in a 50m pool for the first time and is one of only a handful of 50m pools in the Midlands area.
The meet had added significance with the City of Coventry Swimming Club and other Midlands based organisations currently campaigning to keep the pool open as it has been earmarked for closure. This latest meet could possibly be the last to take place at the pool, which for the last few years has hosted the Midlands Regional Championships.
