Henshaw gets European Silver

Congratulations to Charlotte Henshaw (ex-NOVA and Nottinghamshire swimmer) who has just won a European Silver medal on her international debut as a paracanoeist.

Charlotte has said:

I’m 100% aware this is the first, small step on a long journey but it was an incredible experience & something I am very happy to have accomplished. There’s more hard work to be done and I still have a lot to learn but the British Canoeing team have been nothing but supportive and welcoming since I made the transition from swimming & I’m proud to be on the team with and learn from them all.

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.
