Aberdeen Diving Club put on a fantastic performance at the Scottish National Age Group Championships & Thistle Trophy 2023.
From Friday 28th to Sunday 30th April Aberdeen Diving Club had 34 divers competing in the 2023 Thistle Trophy competition and 14 divers competing in the 2023 Scottish National Age Groups (SNAGS) right here in Aberdeen.
Over the 3 days of competition we welcomed diving clubs not only from Scotland, but also from England, Ireland and even Dubai!
The Thistle Trophy is the prize for the novice side of the competition and is calculated based on the performance of novice divers across all ages. For the first time ever, Aberdeen Diving Club finished with the top score winning the Thistle Trophy, which has been won by Edinburgh each year for over the past 10 years!
Furthermore, our Age Group divers took 14 out of 24 National Age Group Championship titles with four of our divers taking part in this level of competition for the first time.
Well done to all of our divers who took part, and we can't wait to see what comes next!
