Meet The Team
Colin Opher - Colin originally joined as a member in 1954, progressing to a fully qualified teacher in 1967, before passing out as a club coach in 1969.
Christine Haddon - Club Chairperson - Christine joined us after watching her five children learn with us. She became a qualified teacher in 1975 and specialises in teaching the beginners.
Margaret McCoy - Margaret joined us as a parent with two children in the early 1980's. When the club coach had to undergo major surgery in 1986, Margaret came along to help out, originally for just 3 months. She enjoyed it so much that she took her exams and qualified as a teacher and has stayed ever since.
Peter Herd - Peter also came to us as a parent with his two children. Unbeknown to anyone he went away and took all of his qualifcations to be able to teach. He then suprised everyone by just turning up and offering his services.
Christopher Matthews - Chris came to us through a youth development programme for sport run by Epsom & Ewell Borough Council in 2004. Once a competitive swimmer, Chris took his qualifications to become a teacher.
Helpers: We currently have five teenage helpers in the club, who work with the instructors and who may one day decide to take the necessary teaching qualifications. The current team is Chloe Stone, Davina Marudamuthu, Laura Schumacher and Tom Rothwell.
In addition, Carol Opher is the Club Secretary who works away in the background dealing with the paperwork and the ASA on differing issues.
