SPORTSYS RESULTS

 

       

We know and understand the queries regarding the rejections and that there are a number of disappointed swimmers out there. Last year we were 85% full with the same QT’s so here’s the challenge we’ve had:

Session 1:  
441 swimmers entered with a max of 300 (at a push go to 310) swimmers on poolside - total swim time 4hrs 28mins trying to fit into 3hr 10mins

Session 2:  
364 swimmers entered with a max of 300 (at a push go to 310) swimmers on poolside - total swim time 3hrs 45mins trying to fit into 3hr 15mins

Session 3:
366 swimmers entered with a max of 300 (at a push go to 305) swimmers on poolside - total swim time 3hrs 40mins trying to fit into 3hr

Session 4:  
403 swimmers entered with a max of 300 (at a push go to 305) swimmers on poolside - total swim time 4hrs 20mins trying to fit into 3hr 15mins

Session 5:  
420 swimmers entered with a max of 285 swimmers on poolside - total swim time 4hrs 50mins trying to fit into 2hr 45mins (actually 3hr 15min but 25mins is allocated to the mystery 200 IM finals)

Rejections have been done across the Age Group bands although it’s a matter of rejecting to lower the session time as well as dropping inside the max number of swimmers on poolside (we would normal not go above 280 so I have already relaxed this to try and get as many swimmers in as possible).  If we had 2nd weekend available it would also be full as these are the entires that arrived before 31st Oct not including the additional entries automatically rejected as arrived after closing date.

Based on received entries and timelines, the % of time
used per session as @ 31st Oct

Session 1 152%
Session 2 115%
Session 3 115%
Session 4 135%
Session 5 145%
