Next SWELL Event:

To be confirmed

08th Apr 20

The recommencement of SWELL fixtures for the 2021/22 season are still to be confirmed.     


2019/2020 Season Report:

As we all know, Coronavirus/Covid-19 has affected all sports, curtailing the completion of season long competitions & causing events to be cancelled.

Nevertheless, with seven of the eight planned SWELL events completed before lockdown, we are belatedly announcing this year’s Champions.

The WHITE course winner is Hugo Maude-Lidbury, who swapped places with last year’s winner, Jake Bennett, who was 2nd this year.

YELLOW winner is Hugo’s big brother Charlie Maude-Lidbury, winning 3 individual events & bettering his 2nd place overall finish last year.

ORANGE went to Janie Horton, improving on her 6th place the previous year.

LIGHT GREEN winner is Daniel Ronnau-Bradbeer, stepping up and doing very well in his new class after winning ORANGE in 2018-19.

The ADULT League was very close between David Dixon & last year’s winner, Mike Muggeridge, with David taking the honour with 665 points & picking up an individual BROWN course win at Langdon Hills.

Viv Hodgson is top Lady in 15th place overall.

Well done to all the winners & thanks to everyone that took part.

Let’s hope we can get a full programme next season, although, with normal orienteering races just beginning again, the 2020/21 SWELL year is likely to be truncated.
