I swim for me , Matt and The Best swim centre.” (I think that says it all) ! Thankyou again, to all of you . Grace and I are so proud to be part of The Best Swim Centre family.
“Dear Judy, It’s taken us far too long to write this email, but better late than never…Thank you and all the coaches for making our first BEST Swim Centre holiday such a memorable one. On our final day, at the awards evening, it felt like we’d known everyone for months not just ten action-packed days.The whole Nugent family had the best holiday that we could have imagined. “
“Hi Vanessa, just wanted to write to thank you and Judy, Patrick, James and Matthew. This was our first FSH and it was so much better than what we had expected. The facilities were great and the team was brilliant in not only teaching techniques and drills to the kids, but also managing to support them in building very quickly new friendships which went a long way in truly making this a memorable experience. The Carrolls!
“Could you let Cati know that Tom competed in the Coventry Open today and swam a 400 free LC time of 5:41.27.  That’s 19 secs chopped off his pb. Thank you for all the help you have given Tom this year. “ Joy Beamer “Could you let Matthew know that Michelle’s backstroke has improved enormously since her lesson with him.   At Club Champs she won gold in the 200, 100 & 50 Back.  Her short course 100M time went from 1.16.02 to 1.1188.  She has been selected to swim Back in National Inter Counties as well as for Hatfield in the Arena League.  So a huge thanks!!!! Shareen Mitchell.
“Good Evening BEST Centre, Majorca. Can you thank everybody and let them know Samantha was on it at the weekend 5 pbs out of 7 races. She knocked a full 1.5 seconds off her 100 free and got sub 28 in her 50 free for the first time. Claimed the club record for the 100 fly (17yrs and over age group) this has stood for 9 years. Will definitely be back for more input in the summer. Thank-you again for giving her the confidence to say ‘I can do this’”.
It has been a great week and the best experience I’ve ever had!" Jessie, Bolton, 2010
Many thanks for giving our family a wonderful holiday. They all really enjoyed themselves and I can see they have grown greatly in confidence both in and out of the water. They talk about their swim camp on a daily basis. Many thanks to Matthew, James and Pat for giving them so much more self belief and skills that will stay with them and that they didn't believe they had." Triona and Terry, 2010

What can i say....Fab! The thing that struck me about the centre was the extremely positive attitude of the staff. All the coaches were excellent." FitzGerald Family
All home safe and sound after really fabulous holiday. The hotel was friendly and efficient and the buffet was so comprehensive even the most picky of children could eat well! We really liked the fact that everything was within walking distance from the hotel - beach, shops and the harbour. It is a beautiful and unspoiled area of Mallorca. Loved the boat trip and somersaulting in the sea. The swim sessions were challenging and fun." Swaby Family
Thank you for a very special Swim Holiday in the brilliant location and the magnificent pool. The results from last weekend's competition are a good indicator of the zest you have now put back into their swimming. We all want to return again." Lavallin Family
