Club Honours Board

Honours Board

Tyldesley Swimming & Water Polo Club was formed in 1876 and since that time the club has seen many swimmers and water polo players achieving International Honours by representing their country and Great Britain.

Over the years the club has produced many swimmers and water polo players who have achieved “honours” at County, Regional, National and International Level.

The most famous club members are Addin Tyldesley who represented Great Britain in the 1908 Olympic Games in London; Duncan Cleworth who represented Great Britain in the 1972 Olympic Games in Montreal, Canada and Jennifer Coughlin who represented Great Britain in 2000 Para-Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia.

Not only have swimmers and water polo players achieved honours, the club has also seen many volunteers being recognised for their hardwork and commitment to aquatics by holding various Presidential positions.

Fred Isherwood was the first person to receive honours when he was appointed President of Manchester & District SWPA in 1907,  in 1910 he was appointed President of Northern Counties ASA (now Swim England North West) and in 1926 he was appointed President of the Amateur Swimming Association (now Swim England).

Past President of the club  Mavis Bent was awarded the MBE in 2010 for voluntary services to water polo in Greater Manchester.
