Len Badcock

It is with great sadness that London Schools notes that Len Badcock has died and offers its condolences to his widow Marie and her family.

Len was a great servant of London Schools, ASA London swimming, the Southern Counties ASA, and Middlesex County ASA, as well as officiating on the poolside and undertaking roles for the Amateur Swimming Association and British Swimming (most recently serving on Juries of Appeal).

His friendship, counsel and support to school swimming and volunteers will be sadly missed.
