The Minisink Swim and Tennis Club, at 1 Princeton St. in Chatham, selected its 30 best swim team performers to represent the club and hosted the 62nd annual Town and Country League All-Team Meet on Saturday, July 29, at the Club’s compound. Threats of rain and cold temperatures did not deter this year's swimmers, and the races were exciting.

The Town and Country League is comprised of six teams: the Berkeley Aquatic Club of Berkeley Heights, the Chatham Fish and Game Association, the Clearwater Swim Club of New Providence, the Crestview Swim and Tennis Club of New Providence, the Minisink Swim and Tennis Club, and the Noe Pond Club of Chatham Township.

According to the Amateur Athletic Association, the Town and Country League’s All-Team Meet is the first and oldest summer swim team competition in the nation.
