Stingrays grateful to KPMG

The Stingray Swim Club has renewed its partnership with KPMG, which stretches over many years, to kick off the 2011 calendar.

KPMG is a long-time sponsor of the club’s curtain raiser and when the decision was made not to hold the Get Back in the Water Burner, SSC were thrilled that KPMG stepped in to sponsor their first sprint meet of the new year, on Saturday 15 January.

Burner meets are generally short events and designed as warm-up meets for the bigger ones and the more taxing open water swims. Also, novice swimmers as young as four and five get a chance to experience a competitive atmosphere. This will be a fully officiated meet with the emphasis on short fast racing, with the first race starting at 10am.

Entry forms are available on line at or from SSC Board Members at the clubhouse at the Lions Pool between 3-5pm all week.
