Now in its 13th year, the event is held as a fun and friendly day of competition for all participants with a disability to enjoy, and saw over 150 people from disability services from the New England and North West dive in.

There were 52 events on the day which also included kick board races, novelty races, including egg and spoon, plus several 25-metre and 50-metre freestyle and multi stroke events.

“From swimming races to other water-based activities, this event encourages all participants to get in and have a go, no matter what their skill or water competence level might be,” Challenge Community Services CEO Barry Murphy said.

Ribbons and prizes were presented on the day for podium places, overall male and female champions and encouragement awards.

Tamworth’s Connexions team won the overall champion team of the event.

Richard Anderson from Challenge Choices received the Debbie Rowe Sportsmanship award for his efforts on the day and the Jason Norman award for Sportsmanship was presented to Tom King-Warren from Sunnyfield Disability Services, Gunnedah.
