Nicholas Titley, chairman of Biggleswade Swimming Club, said: "Thanks to all those people who have been involved in the past year.
"Without the dedication of the coaches and a large number of parents who work in the background supporting the swimmers, they would not have the opportunity to achieve their full potential."
The club chairman also expressed gratitude to sponsors W Jordan's (Cereals) Ltd, Stevenage Leisure Limited (the leisure contractor at Saxon Pool and Flitwick) as well as Mid Beds District Council.
