Please see below email from Wigan Best accepted and rejected Click Here

Good Afternoon,

Firstly could I thank everyone for their kind support of our 2017 meet, we where literally overwhelmed with the interest in this years meet with over 4000 entries unfortunately this does mean we have had to make over 900 rejections to ensure we are able to meet the strict timelines set by the licence conditions. We have kept the rejections as low as we can possibly get away with, and hope everyone understands the dilemma we are in to ensure we have a successful meet.

I have attached separate copies of rejection lists one for the distance meet and other events and also a combined one. This will help in working out the monies owing to each club which are not reflected in the reports due to the limitations of sportsystem not showing the difference in entry fees. We will amend this on the final cheque which will be available for collections during the weekend.

Also attached is the accepted entry list.

All reports will be available for download from the club website asp including warm up procedure and any necessary session time changes.

Once again thank you for your support and apologies for any rejections your club may have received.

Kind regards

Les France

Bradford Christmas meet update…

Shipley pool is shallow at both ends and swimmers need to dive off blocks into shallow water 0.90m.

Only swimmers who have passed the competitive start award are allowed to start from the blocks. Otherwise, they need to start in the water.

Please keep this in mind before you enter this meet.

I will hold a couple is training sessions on Saturday mornings so that swimmers will have the opportunity to gain the competitive start award. Date to be confirmed.

Remember no award no starting from blocks….
