We are very happy to announce, that Madison is now officially a member at Hackney Aquatics Club HAC. I am not stating that Hackney is the best club because all swimming clubs are good clubs but to give you an idea, the sheer happiness factor of the Hackney Swimming club can be seen on this picture from Going Swimmingly.
Currently Madison has dual membership with LAC ACS, Newham and Hackney. It is all possible and you can have as many clubs as you like as long as they’ll have you.
Madison is especially happy to join HAC because many of her “old”* swimming mates are there now and as they know each other, there is no need to get over this first hurdle of getting to know somebody as the ice is already melted. HAC seems to be a magnet for local swimmers who show longevity in swimming.
Madison tried many new things lately, the new LACPP, now the LAC ACS and Newham & UEL but the good old friends are always easiest to have around.
But in my mind also, I think that Hackney Aquatics have the BEST training schedule of any club I’ve seen.
* I don’t think any are older than 15.
