British Gas ASA National County Team Championships
Congratulations to those swimmers who were part of the Beds ASA Team for the British Gas ASA National County Team Championships on Sunday 21 October, at Ponds Forge, Sheffield. Bedfordshire finished 14th of the 19 teams in Division 2, better than in previous years so well done all of you.

County colours are usually awarded to young athletes who represent Bedfordshire ASA for the first time. Colours are normally awarded at the County Championships in respect of team selection during the previous year. Any request for the Executive to award County Colours for exceptional reasons, other than County Team selection, including the minor aquatic disciplines, should be made in writing to the Secretary.
Bedfordshire ASA competes in various inter-county swimming competitions throughout the year. In recent years the County Team has competed at:
- The Kingerlee Trophy Gala – a meet organised by Oxon and N Bucks ASA and held at Milton Keynes in May
- The ASA East Region Inter-counties – a meet held in July and hosted by counties in the East Region on rotation
- The ASA National Inter-county Team competition – held in October at Ponds Forge, Sheffield.
Selection for the Bedfordshire ASA County Teams is made with regard to the current ASA on line ranking list which can be found at: http://www.britishswimming.org. Any enquiries about team selection should be referred to the Competition Secretary.
