The Parker Family

“2007 was my first year at Drummoyne Swimming Club.  My children and I were made very welcome from day one.  I like the way its casualness allows the youngest members to compete regardless of their levels, thus making it a good venue for the whole family. We are sure to be back”. Nicola Griffin Parker
