Swim England is sad to announce the passing of Leo Beatty, and offer our condolences to his family and friends at this difficult time.

Beatty was a lifelong member of Wakefield and District Water Polo league and had a wealth of experience in the sport.

He was known for being knowledgeable and helpful, and was a stalwart supporter of water polo at regional and national levels.

Beatty was also a past president of the ASA North East Region and had lots of influence in the world of swimming.

Each year the Yorkshire Swimming Association presents the Leo Beatty Trophy. This is awarded to the Masters swimmer with the highest points total from all their swims in the past season.
