Chesterfield swimmers ready for training week in Tenerife

Swimmers from a top Derbyshire swimming club are off for a week-long intensive training programme in Tenerife.

Nineteen members of Chesterfield Swimming Club are making the trip - a contrast with their usual training base at Ponds Forge in Sheffield.

The week is being sponsored by Sheffield-based supply teacher agency PK Education, which has also provided new training kits.

The swimmers will be based at T3, a brand new sports complex built in La Caleta in the southern corner of Tenerife, which is designed to offer intensive training in perfect weather conditions.

Head coach Mark Tanner said: “We’re thrilled to be able to take the swimmers to Tenerife. The T3 facility gives them the opportunity to train intensely.”
