Testimonial from Mr Douglas Whitlam, Current President of Swim England: 

My name is Douglas Whitlam and I have been a swimming coach at a local swimming club since 1979. I have held numerous positions within swimming over the years including Chair of Derbyshire ASA, County President, Regional President and I am currently President of Swim England.

It's my privilege to write this recommendation letter for Derby Excel Swimming Club.

Derby Excel have a long history of producing elite swimmers through their Performance Pathway programme many of whom have represented their country at international competitions including European, Commonwealth, World and Olympic Games

They are the Performance Pathway programme for Derbyshire and have been since 2000 allowing young swimmers to fulfil their ambitions while remaining members of their home clubs.

Derby Excel host numerous high quality open meet competitions around the Midlands and thereby expose any sponsor to a wide and varied audience.

They are also a community based swimming club with a strong age group programme taking swimmers from the learning stages through to elite athletes.

You will be sponsoring a club whose professionalism and dedication are an example to all well run clubs.
