Essex Age Group Championships
These take place each year in January and February, with entry closing in December.
In the last couple of days, we have been informed that Basildon Sporting Village will be closing for 2 weeks in January for “essential maintenance” on the pool floor. They are due to re-open on 17th January, just 1 day before Block A of the County Championships.
We have therefore made the decision to move Block A to the end of the competition to the weekend of 28/29 Feb/1 March 2020.
All other dates will remain unchanged and the schedule of events will remain the same.
We are aware of the clash with English Schools and we have been working extensively to try and find an alternative, however after looking at the alternatives available, this date was the only option available to us within the County window.
Entry for 2020 competition:
Block A – 28/29 Feb & 1 March 2020 at BSV
Block B – 1st/2nd February 2020 at LAC (Sat) and BSV (Sun)
Block C – 14/15/16 February 2020 at BSV
Age on day: 31 Dec. 2020
