Long Eaton Swimming Club had a large number of members in action over the last two weekends at the 2012 British Gas Derbyshire ASA County Championships.

The new Arc Leisure Centre in Matlock was the venue for the first weekend and the eight-lane pool provided an excellent facility for some impressive swimming. The second weekend’s events took place at Chesterfield where the individual programme of events was completed.
