Cheltenham swimmers from our Junior, State, and State Development squads participated in a training trip exchange with the Eumundi District Swimming Club in Queensland over the second week of the July holidays. Our swimmers experienced what it was like to train outside in winter, swam doubles each day for a week, and made new friends with our Queensland partner club.
