Because of the Sunderland v Tottenham Hotspur premiership football match due over the weekend of 7th & 8th of December the date has changed for the ASANER 25m Championships at Sunderland to the weekend before i.e. 30th November and 1st December, this has been done to avoid any inconvenience to those attending the championships. The championships information will be changed in due course, the closing dates will remain the same.
ASANER apologises for any inconvenience this date change causes but the decision has been made in conjunction with the Sunderland Aquatics Centre.
To avoid any inconvenience in the future the dates of the ASANER events at Sunderland will be fixed after the Premiership Football fixtures have been announced in June each year.
