Dartmoor Darts continue to build with addition of junior squad

DARTMOOR Darts Aquatic, a swimming club based in Tavistock, have been going from strength-to-strength since they were formed in August 2017.

They have enjoyed success at county and national level, with Cameron Williams leading the way with British age group records.

But they recently established a junior squad for swimmers aged 11 and under.

These youngster swim twice a week for 45 minutes each and work on technique, endurance and stamina during fun sessions.

Three of their junior squad competed at the Devon County Sprints event at the Plymouth Life Centre and impressed.

Alex Grenardo was on top form with four personal bests and four gold medals in the boys’ 12 year-old age group.

Sebastian Grenardo achieved three big PBs in the 50m breaststroke, butterfly and backstroke, while
Zara Kinsey, though still nine, swam in the 10 year age group and performed well.

Coach Matthew Henry said: “We are extremely happy with how the junior squad are coming along.

“It is a welcome addition to our programme and we are very pleased of the improvements of the swimmers so far.

“Our three young swimmers did fantastically well at the Devon County Sprints and we will be looking to further build from there.”
