Club and Wandsworth Championships (Level 4 )
You must enter reasonably accurate times so you are placed in a heat with swimmers who have similar times. If you do not have a time for an event you should ask your coach for a time.
For Club Championships you can enter without a time but you will be placed in one of the first and slowest heats.
Open meets Levels 3 to 1
You must enter accurate times so they are placed in heats with other swimmers who have similar times.
Most of these meets have maximum and minimum times for entry to the meet. Please check carefully against these times before entering to ensure that you are eligible. Any swimmer with times that are too slow or too fast for any event in that meet will have their entry rejected by the organisers of the meet.
Level 1 meets are for the elite swimmers and are held in 50m pools. If long course times are asked for you should convert your short course time into a long course time.
Surrey, Regional and National Championships
All entry times must be exactly correct. You should check your times against those held on the British Swimming Results website.
Any times that aren’t exactly the same as those on the rankings are rejected. You may be asked where and when you got these times.
Times from level 4 meets and above are eligible for the Surrey Championships. Times from level 3 meets and above are eligible for Regional and National Championships.
