As a result, David Andrews, BWPL Chairman, has sent a further letter to British Swimming and Swim England, stating: "The (previous) note did not seek to represent a personal view or indeed the view of the BWPL management group, but simply highlighted the concerns the sport had communicated to us.
"From your responses there is clearly work going on behind the scenes which will hopefully result in tangible progress by the end of October.
"As you can imagine, we have been inundated with comment from our membership (remember, this comprises some 2000 players, coaches and officials) and from many others involved in the sport. The consensus view is that the end of October represents a good point to re-assess the situation in the light of progress made by then.
"The sport remains nervous about its future as was made abundantly clear by our discussions with clubs, players and officials during our most recent showpiece event at Ponds Forge, in Sheffield."
