Roger Downing

Devon Representative & Vice Chair

Roger has been involved in swimming for 20 years - originally as a parent helper, then teacher to coach, then licensed official for club and county.  Now he is on the Devon Management Committee, is a former Devon President, Regional Board Member and now Regional Vice Chairman.

His previous career was a senior bank manager and then early retirement brought him to a career managing a large firm of solicitors until final retirement a few years ago. This experience is now used to help manage Plainmoor Community Pool, which is a charity pool in Torquay (2 swimming clubs).

Roger was a competitive rugby player, although nowadays contents himself with watching rather than playing.  Golf is now his sport of choice, although his competitive spirit hasn’t dimmed much!
