Unfortunately we have not been accepted for entry into the Major Oak meet. Our best efforts went in to ensuring our file-set was sent off two weeks earlier than in 2016 to minimise the rejections we incurred last season. Although successful in our timescales, the popularity of the meet leaves us in search of alternative options.
We have found an excellent solution to the problem: The Boldmere Open. This meet is available for entry on the same weekend as Major Oak and just an hour drive away from Derby. It is a level 3 meet offering all 50m-400m events, distinct age finals for 100 free and a medley skins event. Note that 9 year old swimmers are able to enter any event, but please check with your coach before entering longer distances.
