Further to recent advice given by the Government and Swim England and in the interest of our members and their families, we have taken the difficult decision to temporarily close the club, with immediate effect from Friday 20th March 2020.

The club have not taken this decision lightly and we will make another statement shortly regarding swim fees.

We will, of course, keep you updated with how the situation develops but in the meantime stay well and try and keep fit and healthy!

Cancellation of Newquay Cormorants Open Gala – 22nd March 2020

In view of the new guidance emerging from the Government – namely avoiding social contact and unnecessary travel – and the news that Swim England have cancelled all competitions organised by the national governing body between now and May ( we have no option but to cancel Newquay Open on Sunday 22nd March.

Whilst we are deeply saddened to have to take this course of action the safety of swimmers, spectators, officials and pool staff has to take priority in these unchartered times. We will be looking to rearrange our gala later in the year as and when it becomes feasible. We thank you for supporting our open meet and hope to see you later in the year. It will be our intention, subject to licencing approval, to give preference to those swimmers who entered our March gala at the re-arranged event.

We will of course refund clubs the entry fees that have been paid – to aid this please can you confirm bank details that repayment needs to be made

All the best for the time ahead

Newquay Cormorants

On Saturday 18th January 2020, a strong Newquay Cormorants team entered Division 1 of the Junior Inter-County Club Championship. Newquay Cormorants came out victorious and are now Diddy League and Junior Inter-Club Champions!

The format of this championship was similar to the recent Diddy League, which the Cormorants won. The team consisted of swimmers aged 9-12 years old, and each race counted towards the team total. This event was, however, a step up in standard compared to the Diddy League, with Regional standard swimmers allowed into teams, something not permitted in the Diddy League.

Despite this step up in standard, Newquay Cormorants dominated the event from the start. They came out winners by almost 50 points! The final points tally was:

  • 1st – Newquay Cormorants – 196 points
  • 2nd – CBHSC – 147 points
  • 3rd – Truro City – 141 points
  • 4th – St Ives Bay – 113 Points
  • 5th – St Austell Sharks – 90 points

Well done to all swimmers who took part with some incredible swims and a superb team spirit on show. This now makes the Newquay Cormorants Diddy League and Junior Inter-Club Champions, cementing our place as one of the South West’s leading swim clubs.

A huge thank you to all those who helped poolside, and massive credit must go to our fantastic coaching team who are clearly doing fabulous work with our swimmers. Finally, a special must go to Sue for organising the team.

Well done Cormorants!
