The Accepted and Rejected entries for the London Summer Open Meet can be found below along with the revised scheduled with confirmed session timings.

Please read this message from London Swimming:  

"Thank you all for your interest in our Meet - we received a great many entries, so many in fact that we have had need to reject some in order to achieve a workable Meet Schedule.
The following actions were taken to achieve this;
1. The QTs were marked up by 4.5% across all events and age categories.
2. Additional consideration was given to MSC Dubai and Garioch SC swimmers who have booked flights and accomodation for their swimmers and are travelling the furthest to attend. We feel this is reasonable given the advance cost and organisation that their entries required of them.
3. The LD events (1500FR & 800FR) were restricted to 20 entries each (2 heats per event).
We greatly regret having to take this action but hope it will permit the event to run smoothly and give all entrants the opportunity to swim to their full potential."


To enable the refunds to be made quickly once the funds have been received from London Swimming, please ensure Teresa Luhman has your bank account details or advise her if you would prefer a cheque as soon as possible .

Thank you, Lindsey
