Bendigo Hawks Aquatic celebrated their 10th anniversary in style with 200 swimmers participating in the 2022 Bendigo Summer Meet at Faith Leech Aquatic Centre.
Bendigo Hawks president Frances Andrews said it was fantastic to have swimmers from over 20 clubs across Victoria come to Bendigo.
"We had swimmers travel from as far away as Warrnambool, Horsham, Swan Hill, Seymour, Mansfield and Melton, plus a large contingent of swimmers from right here in Bendigo," Andrews said.
"It is so great to see community sport back particularly for our younger generation."
It has been ten years since two of Bendigo's oldest swimming clubs, Bendigo Swimming Club and Eaglehawk Swimming Club, merged to become Bendigo Hawks Aquatic.
"Bendigo Swimming Club and Eaglehawk Swimming Club had 150 years of existence between them,'' Andrews said.
"The Bendigo Summer Meet on Sunday celebrated the past and the present for the Bendigo Hawks and we look forward to many more years of helping all individuals reach their full potential in the pool."
Bendigo Hawks Aquatic are hosting 'come and try' nights every Wednesday night in January and February at Faith Leech Aquatic Centre.
"Our club proudly caters for swimmers of all abilities, with all different sorts of goals,'' Andrews said.
