Awards

The Tadpoles have two trophies that are presented annually.

The Taylor Trophy

In 1984, the Taylor family presented the club with a trophy to be awarded for progress.

The 2019 recipient was Joel Gorden Clark.

Joel was awarded the trophy because of his tremendous effort to cooperate with his helpers to enable everyone to enjoy the experience.

The Barbara Uphill Trophy

Barbara Uphill was one of our early Tadpole members in the 1980s and her sister presented the Barbara Uphill Trophy to the Tadpoles in 1993 in her memory. The trophy is awarded annually for outstanding achievement.

In 2019, the award was presented to Stewart Booth.

Sturt was awarded the trophy because of his determination to swim again. He has progressed from walking and occasionally swimming widths, to regularly swimming 15 lengths.

Other Awards

For our more able swimmers, we record the number of lengths completed each week. The annual total is depicted on a certificate showing how far they would have swam across the English Channel, or along the River Thames.

20 such awards were made this year to, Sylvia Wilson, Sam Swindell, Jack Parmenter, Paul Thomas, Roger Sutcliffe, Jo Minogue, Frances Holman, Callum Lewin, Lauren White, Jo Satchell, Polly Minogue, Xavier Connor Kingett, Philip Comber, Dave Sharp, Stewart Booth, Stewart Crump, Vernon James, Terry Delacour, Steven Outred and Yvonne Law.
