Welcome to 4Sswimschool, set in the beautiful grounds of Handcross Park Prep School.

 

Sisters Linda Hooker and Jackie Reeves have always been involved in the world of swimming from a very early age having been inspired by their late father. They both swam competitively as youngsters and Linda still competes at the highest  level representing Great Britain as a Masters swimmer at both European and World Championships.



Along with our expert team of teachers we now want to pass on our experience and knowledge to children so that they learn this life-saving skill and can be safe in and around water.

 

Please take a few moments to look at our website and contact us if you have any questions.

We now have a Facbook page please invite your friends along to have a look.



Many Thanks


Jackie and Linda

NEWS  ON SWIMMERS PAST AND PRESENT




The weekend just gone saw Isabel compete in the final weekend of this year’s Sussex Spring County Championships.

 

Isabel qualified for 14 of the 16 events in this year’s main county championships and she did really well. She won her first ever county medal in the 400m Individual Medley, won 5 Rosettes’ and made it to 2 county finals (100m events). However more impressively, due to her consistent high placings, and also because she can compete in all strokes/events Isabel finished 4th overall for her age group.

 

So fingers crossed Isabel should receive an invite at some point to join the Sussex development squad.



Well done Isabel 4sswimschool are very proud of you.

Title : From Swimming teacher to Pupil




 
Eleanor Morris recently swum in the Crawley Swimming Club club championships
 
Amongst her success she won two Breaststroke trophies. Her swimming teacher Linda won the same swimming trophies in 1973,1974 and 1975. Before Eleanor went into club swimming she used to swim with Linda at 4sswimschool on a Saturday. Once Linda had seen the obvious talent that Eleanor had she encourage her to go into club swimming.


Eleanor now helps with the swimschool on a Saturday morning with the younger swimmers passing on her swimming knowledge and skills. The children absolutely love her and look forward to seeing her each week.


We are so proud of Eleanor at the swimschool and hope that one day she might take up teaching part time.


Linda still swims with the masters at crawley and has recently swum in the county championships breaking two county records and winning 4 gold and 3 silver medals. Her next goal is to do well at the Masters Nationals in Sheffield and then the European Masters to be held in London next year.
