This year the club have been fortunate enough to announce the start of a bursary. The bursary is sponsored by David and Paul Shackley who both swam at and for EPASC over the years along with other clubs in the area. They first swam at the old EPIC pool in 1970. Both swam competitively culminating in David representing Great Britain in long distance swimming including being part of a world record relay team for a two way channel swim whilst Paul swam for both Great Britain and England in Breaststroke and represented England in the Commonwealth Games.
David and Paul wanted to sponsor a young swimmer from their home town club to put something back into the sport that gave them so much.
David is now a senior vice president at Marriot International in Washington DC and Paul is the chief executive if Rushmoor Borough Council in Hampshire. The lessons learned in the pool including dedication, hard work, team work and the ability to bounce back from disappointments have without doubt helped them both to achieve in their careers.
The swimmer in receipt of the bursary this year is Connor Waterworth.
