RR had no entries in the club technical solo or club duet competition. Reading Royals' swimmers Katie Clark and Emma Critchley did though swim in the Open competition for GB (not as a pair) finishing 1st and 2nd respectively.

Post Emma's solo and Open/GB swims,  Day2 found us largely uncompetitive in the Technical and Free Team Routines, finishing 7th and 6th respectively.

Disappointing though this was, many thanks go to Kate Coupar, Alison Pierro and Sam Welland for heading up the teams at the competition.
