Further Information Regarding the Norwich Weekend of the Regional Long Course Championships

Published on Saturday, 24 January 2015 13:18

The Technical Swimming Committee has decided to make no change to the published dates and venues for the 2015 Long Course Championships.

The Technical Swimming Committee has now looked at the options for the 2015 Long Course Championships. We have considered a range of alternatives including:

- Swapping the two bookings over so weekend 1 is at UEA and weekend 2 is at Inpsire
- Using Basildon for weekend 2
- Changing the date for weekend 2

Unfortunately none of these options were possible. The Pool Operator for the Basildon pool has previously advised that they are unwilling to allow morning bookings because this would disrupt their Learn to Swim programme. Active Luton have tried very hard to accomodate a change but there is an existing booking for a multi-sport event which could prevent use of the pool on the Sunday morning. We have also concluded that a change of date is not practical as we need to use a three day bank holiday weekend in order to accomodate the maximum number of swimmers possible. We also need to conclude championships by the end of May to allow our swimmers to be considered for the National Championships.

In taking this decision we were also mindful that many parents have booked and paid for hotels in Luton and Norwich and that change would leave families out of pocket. I hope those who have not yet booked hotel rooms in Norwich will be able to make suitable arrangements.

UEA SportsPark have assured us that they can still accomodate the Regional Championships and we will work with them, the UEA security staff and local clubs to ensure that things run as smoothly as possible. There will inevitably be problems over parking and access and we will provide what guidance we can nearer the time.
