County Championship QT Consulatation

Please click here for a DRAFT copy of the 2018 Nottinghamshire ASA County Championship Qualification Times. These are being passed to you for consultation.

The qualification times have been derived by looking at previous entry number into events and feedback that we have received from the 2017 championships, along with the pool time we have managed to secure for the 2018 championships.

Please note that the 800m Free/1500m Freestyle events will be restricted to 4 heats of each due to time constraints at the pool. If oversubscribed these events will be restricted as a percentage across all age groups from submitted entries and all rejections will be notified as soon as possible after entries have closed.

We would appreciate it if you could take these back to your club to review and provide constructive feedback. Please consolidate any feedback from your club by filtering through a single contact to the county email address (county.entries@notts-swimming.co.uk). The consultation period will close on Sunday 13th August 2017. Genuine comments will be reviewed and we will then look to publish the final qualification times (subject to licensing) towards the end of August/Early September.

Sue Arrowsmith winner of 2016 Cherriman Award

Nottinghamshire and Leander’s Sue Arrowsmith has been named as the winner of the 2016 Cherriman Award.

Sue was the unanimous choice of the newly formed Home Countries Masters Swimming Management Group from the eight nominations received.

The Nottingham Leader swimmer, known as ‘The Prof’, put in tireless work over the last two years to raise the concerns of the Masters community about the European Championships.

She helped to establish a workable solution with British Swimming, in terms of funding and the re-establishment of a representative group to deal with Masters development.

Away from the pool, Sue is Achilles Professor of Public Procurement Law and Policy at Nottingham University and takes time out from, amongst other things, addressing the European Parliament on the implications of Brexit to lobby on our behalf.

She is also the Nottingham County Masters Rep and plays an active role, in conjunction with the coach, of organising the Nottingham Leander team.

Home Countries Mastser Swimming Management Group chair Verity Dobbie said: “Well done Sue. We are all grateful for your efforts.

“It’s always an interesting session reading the nominations for the award and it’s truly impressive the amount of great work and volunteering that people do for our sport.

“There were eight nominations this year which I think might be a record and whilst they were all great, the eventual winner was head and shoulders above the rest when considering the criteria for this award.”

About the Cherriman Award

The Vivienne and Leonard Cherriman Award is an annual award presented each year to the individual or group who have done the most to foster or promote the cause of Masters swimming in Great Britain.

The award was introduced in 1993 following a donation by the Cherriman family in memory of their parents, Vivienne and Leonard, who were early stalwarts of the Masters movement in this country, with Vivienne notably producing the very first Masters newsletter.
