Entry Times

There is no requirement for entry times to appear on rankings. They could be the result of internal timed swims.

If the swimmer does have a time on rankings, or has recorded a time in an official, but unlicensed competition, such a minor league gala, the published limit times apply.

Several clubs have decided not to enter the development meet this year. That means that this is a great opportunity for other clubs to get swimmers accepted who might not have thought they were fast enough.


The competing members of any club allocated to the Association, and any member of an organisation registered directly to the ASA who is normally resident in Hampshire, shall be allowed to compete providing they are eligible as defined in Swim England Law.

Any swimmer who competed in any event in the 2022 Hampshire County Championships may not enter that same event (stroke and distance) in the Development Competition. Swimmers who entered the 200m Individual Medley event in the County Championships may not enter the 100m Individual Medley.

Any swimmer who, at the time of entry for the Development Competition, has achieved a time faster than the published limit time, in any Licensed Meet or any competition open to members of more than one club (even if not Licensed) since 1st September 2021, may not enter that event in the Development Competition.

A swimmer must be a registered member of the club in the name of which he/she is entered no later than 31st May 2022. 

For this competition, a swimmer’s age shall be determined as at midnight on the last day of the competition, 3rd July 2022. [Which allows us to include a 9/10 years age group].


In line with prevailing government policy, there will be no requirement for social distancing or the wearing of face coverings at this event.

However, anyone in a vulnerable group (such as those with a compromised immune system) should be aware that the pool hall is likely to be a hot, crowded area, with limited ventilation, and should assess for themselves the risks associated with participation in the event in any capacity.

As an example, MIke Lambert, the County Swimming Secretary, has been undergoing chemo-therapy which compromised his immune system and has decided not to attend the competition.

Individual Entries

There is no provision for individual entries to this competetion. All entries must be submitted by a club, that will take responsibility for

  1. Payment of fees
  2. Confirmation that the entry conforms to the competition conditions
  3. Supervision of swimmers by a suitably qualified coach or team manager during the competition
