The Wishart Sharks hold a club night each Friday night of the swimming season (Term 4 and Term 1). The club nights are a chance for club members to get out and have a good time competing against their own previous times as well as against their friends. Races are arranged so swimmers are swimming against others with similar times for that event (rather than by age). Each night there is a 25m & 50m event for each stroke and a 100m event in one stroke.
There is a canteen for drinks and snacks and a BBQ with burgers, chicken skewers and sausages.
Come along, let the kids hit the pool, grab a burger and a drink and join in the community that is the Wishart Sharks Swim Club.
Gates open 5:30pm
