Scottish Swim Team Wins First Ever Swim Club Awards
Simply Swim, the UK’s biggest specialist swimwear retailer, have just announced the winners of the Swim Club Awards 2015, the first year this competition has ever been run. The lucky winners were REN96 Swim Team based near Glasgow, Scotland.
The Swim Club Awards were created this year by Simply Swim to give swimming clubs the opportunity to buy great new kit and equipment for the team, to support and promote swimming clubs across the UK and to encourage people to get involved in swimming. The competition was open from the 17th to the 28th August for submissions so that all types of clubs could enter into the awards. The winners were then chosen by public vote, which opened on the 4th September and closed on the 2nd October. The prize was £1000 to spend on swimwear and equipment for the team at SimplySwim.com, a trophy, and Simply Swim kit bags for the whole team.
“We are delighted with the overwhelmingly positive response to the Swim Club Awards. A whole range of different clubs wanted be involved and it really showed how many people in the UK love swimming. It was also great to be able to help a team based so far away from ourselves, which demonstrates how much reach social media can have. We are excited to make this an annual event and continue to help swim clubs across the UK” – Simply Swim
After a month of promotion by Simply Swim and all the swim clubs, the results were announced on the 5th October. Following a huge public vote, REN96 were chosen as the winners, beating 400 UK swim clubs to win the £1000 voucher prize.
“We’re really glad we entered the Swim Club Awards and grateful to everyone that took the time and voted to support the club. The prize will help us to purchase new equipment to enhance performance for the whole team.” – REN96 Swim Team
