Championships 2020

Next year sees all the individual events swum over three weekends instead of four, at LAC (weekend 1) and Crystal Palace (Weekends 2 and 3). The Team Championships will also be held at Crystal Palace (Saturday 29 Feb 2020).

Dates and Venues

  • Weekend One - 18/19 January 2020 - London Aquatic Centre
  • Weekend Two - 25/26 January 2020 - Crystal Palace
  • Weekend Three - 1/2 February 2020 - Crystal Palace
  • Team Championships - 29 Feb 2020 - Crystal Palace

Key points to note:

One less weekend means a lot less travel for all.

We have managed to keep the entry numbers the same (except in the 1500m event, where we have reduced the entry numbers by 1 person per age group compared to the actual entries last year.

  • The 2020 individual programme is here
  • 2020 Boys QT"s are here
  • 2020 Girls QT's are here

More information will be released in the next few weeks along with the full entry pack

Qualifying Times

Every year we publish QT's there are always comments that they are too tough. Then every year the swimmers step up and we have to refund 20% or so of the entries. For those that don't know, the QT's are set by reference to all Kent swimmers performances using a weighted average over the past 4 years actual swims. We aim to set the auto QT, at the halfway point of allowable entries.

As an example, if we have a limit of 28 swimmers (50's), in this case, the QT is set as the average of the 14th fastest time based on the past 4 years swims across all Kent swimmers in that event and age group. It's highly statistical and set to be as scientific as possible.

We have a new QT generator which uses the "Kent formula" to automatically generate QT's using data from every licensed Kent swimmers ranking time (even if they have moved out of the county) over the past four seasons (thanks to Mark Leman of RTW) for the programming - and the rankings database team for the data
