Please see the below confirmation from Derventio regarding the weekend:
It is disappointing but given the latest government advice and following further consultation with Swim England East Midlands on COVID-19, with athlete, spectator, staff and volunteer wellbeing as the priority, it is with regret that we are cancelling our forthcoming eXcel Open Meet (20th – 22nd March) and DX National Qualifier (3rd – 5th April).
We are currently working with SIV (the company who operate Ponds Forge) to handle this situation and will be in touch with all individuals and clubs that entered as soon as possible to manage this. Please bear with us, we ask for your patience as we work through this. We are a small club whose committee are all volunteers and we will manage this as swiftly as we possibly can.
Our priority right now is to inform all of this decision and we will follow up with you over the coming weeks to manage the cancellation process further.
Thank you for the support and patience.
Please remember to cancel any accommodation you have booked. Anybody who has purchased a non-flex room with the Premier Inn have confirmed that they will treat such bookings as flexible.
