Swimmers battling for synchro trophies

Whilst the swimmers will be competing for individual honours, they will also have their sights set on the team trophy.

The country’s top clubs will be favourites for the acclaimed Redwood Trophy. This is awarded to the club with the highest technical and free team routine scores.

Rushmoor took home the trophy in 2017, the fifth time in the last decade. They will be hoping to hold onto it for another year.
