Gloucester Blocks Entries

Have you achieved any of the qualifying or consideration times? To find out, you will need to visit the British Swimming website to see your individual best times, and compare them with the consideration times here. Times must be from 2016.Age groups are age as at 31st December 2017, so a swimmer born in 2005 will compete as an 12 year old even though they may not be 12 until the end of 2017.

All information has been e-mailed to swimmers, but if you have not received an e-mail and think you may be eligible to enter then please e-mail

Entry form for BHSC swimmers

All times must have been achieved at a licensed meet (L1 to L4) in 2016, This means that you will need to have entered or be entering a licensed meet (such as the UBSC L3 open meet in November, BHSC Club Championships or the Bristol North Open meet in September 2016) to be able to take part in the Blocks in 2017.

Consideration times have been re-introduced, but qualifying times are tougher than last year. If your time is faster than the qualifying time in a particular event, then your entry is guaranteed to be accepted. If your time is between the consideration time and qualifying time then your entry may be accepted, with entries from faster swimmers being accepted first, but the county do anticipate that the vast majority of entries will be accepted.

BHSC entries must reach Kathryn Wragg on or before THURSDAY 1st DECEMBER, cheques payable to Bristol Henleaze Swimming Club. Please let me know if you are competing in an open meet after that date and before 18th Dec, because I will be able to amend times before sending the electronic entry file to the County organisers.

You can find more information on the Gloucester County Blocks website.
