South East Region Winter Championships 2016  (Short Course)
(Closing Date: 21:00 Monday 17th Oct., 2016)
This Open Championship takes place on 5/6 Nov., 2016 at the Mountbatten Leasure Centre in Portsmouth.

Being "Open" means there are no special QTs for age-groups. Just Open QTs are used. Hence the entry standard is very high, (higher than Kents, and Regional Age group Champs). For example, the Base Consideration/Auto times for 50 free (SC) are 25.3/ 24.4(Boys) and 26.10/25.2(Girls).

All details: Programme of Events, QTs and Conditions may be found HERE.
I have just entered Harry R into 6 events.
If you make an entry (you have to do this online), please send me a copy of the entry receipt, since I have to send the Summary Sheet, and pay for all club entries together.
Thanks, Keith Rennolls (


The Club is currently working on a new website.  News updates will (mostly) be issued via the Club Newsletter until the new site is finished.

National Championships: Summer 2016
The selection window for the Summer National Championships closed on 31 May 2016. The window had been open since 12 March 2016.

Harry Rennolls has recieved invitations from British Swimming to take part in the British Summer National Championships (26 July to 31 July 2016 in Sheffield) in three events: 50free, 50fly and 100free. The Champs are LC.

Harry will accept these invitations.

According to the selection window times, Harry is ranked 2nd, 2nd and 5th respectively in his three events. But medals cannot be assumed: new stars are popping up frequently in this age group (i.e. 16 yo boys).

Harry will not accpt this invitation since the 50 back race takes place 3 days after the end of the British Summer Champs.
