1st May is Friday evening only
4th May is a school day. We have tried to find an alternative to using a school day, but have not been succesful.

Monday 23rd July - Current Status

After considerting a number of options, we have now settled on the "least bad" option.

We tried to get access to K2 on Friday May 8th (the new date for the Bank Holiday). That is not possible.
We do have access to Wycombe on Monday May 4th. 

We now have 3.5 days for 15/over.

  • We are not able to offer additional time compared to 2019 and once again may not be able to accept everyone who has a realistic chance of making the Swim England Summer Meet
  • Monday May 4th is a School Day. We tried to avoid having to use that day, but have not identified any realistic alternative.

Sunday July 14th 2019 - Current Status

Planning the 2020 Championships is now proving to be very challenging. To quote one of the coaches: "There is no good solution, we need to look for the least bad one."

The challenges are:

  1. The closing date of the National Qualifying Window has been brought forward from the end of May to 10th May.
  2. GCSE examinations start on 11th May.
  3. The government has moved the early May bank holiday from Monday 4th May to Friday 8th May.
  4. We really need 4 full days for the 15/over championships to ensure that all swimmers who have a realistic change of qualifying for National competitions.

Our original intent was to hold a 4 day meet for the 15/Over Championships over the bank holiday weekend.

The Swimming Group, with the support of the Regional Management Board have decided that it would be irresponsible to hold a 4 day competition over the 7th-10th May because of the proximity of examinations.

We are currently investigating a number of alternative plans. All of these are dependent on the availability of pool time. Until we have resolved that, we are not in a position to move forward.
