Judging by the expressions on these Horwich Swimming Club team members during an evening of inter-town aquatic sports at Horwich Pool in 1972, the event certainly was successful.

Competing in the programme of games, based on the popular TV series "It's a Knock Out" were teams from Chorley, Withnell, Worsley, Kirkham, and Wigan.

The evening had been organised by the Horwich Club on behalf of the District Council as one of the programme of events to celebrate the District Council centenary.
