Our clubs are obviously desperate to get back in action as soon as possible. And there has been considerable support for the idea of running an event of some kind.
At this stage, the committee have agreed that a stand-alone event – in other words, one that doesn’t impact on promotion and relegation issues decided at the end of the 2019/20 campaign – could work well, perhaps in April and May. It’s certainly worth a try! But, of course, much will depend on the Covid-19 situation next Spring and whether strict guidelines outlined by Swim England and the Government’s Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport can be met.
