Amateur Swimming Association Awards

A spectacular evening of dinner, awards and dancing was hosted by the Amateur Swimming Association at Athena for 250 guests in early February. The British Swimming Staff Awards showcase the hard work that goes into the sport and its organisation.

The formal evening began with a drinks reception where guests could have their photos taken beneath a giant lit up archway which staged the evening as quite glamorous.

Guests then proceeded into the Cinema Suite where the master of ceremonies, former team England rugby star Ben Kay regaled them with tales of his glory days. Guests were served a delicious three-course meal, prepared in house by Athena chefs. After dinner the awards were given out and once again Mr. Kay had the guests in stitches with his reminiscing. The evening ended with a disco, spun by Athena’s very own DJ and guests tested their luck at the casino tables.
