Information for Meet Organisers Using Meet Management Software
The 12 character meet codes in this list have been edited to try to introduce some consistency.
Where possible the geographical names of the club are shown in order to help identification in gala programs. The following rules have been applied where possible, however, in a very few cases where this would significantly alter a name by which a club is nationally known this may not be the case.
Clubs with "Borough of" in their name are listed as BO (space) followed by the name.
Clubs with "City of" in their name are listed as CO (space) followed by the name.
Clubs with "Isle of" in their name are listed as IO (space) followed by the name.
University clubs have the university name first, followed by UNI, UN or U.
Schools Associations have the name first, followed by SA.
Diving clubs have the name followed by DC.
Synchronised Swimming clubs have the name followed by SYN or SY.
NB: Punctuation marks have been removed and the word "and" is represented with "&".
