Summer Festival of Swimming 2021

Friday 16 – Sunday 18 July 2021

Royal Commonwealth Pool, Edinburgh, EH16 5BB (RCP) 
Aberdeen Aquatics Centre, Aberdeen, AB24 1SX (ASV)
Tollcross International Swimming Centre, Glasgow, G32 7QR (TX)

In addition to the “Festival of Swimming” announcement published in May, the full meet information is now available.

Please note:
The meets are being planned based on the current protection levels and the published competition guidance. Restrictions may change leading in to the “Festival of Swimming” and as such meet conditions may need to be amended, resulting in a reduced number of accepted entries or that the competition may not proceed as planned. Any decision on potential changes to conditions will be made closer to the closing date and therefore we recommend that re-fundable accommodation arrangements or travel commitments are made. Finally, the number of entries that can be accepted will be determined by the capacity of each venue as determined by restrictions.  For this reason, entries are likely to be determined by swimmer rather than by event (i.e.) accepted swimmers are likely to be able to swim most or all the event entered.

Any enquiries, please contact

The Festival of Swimming will take place as a network of long course meets in Scotland, England and Wales to celebrate the resumption of competition after the Covid-19 lockdowns and restrictions.

In Scotland there will be three discrete meets taking place in long course venues over the same weekend.  These will be led by Scottish Swimming to ensure consistency and equality of opportunity across the country for aspects such as:

  • Qualification criteria
  • Programme of events
  • Conditions of competition (in so far as is practical)

The meets will however be managed more locally to spread resources and minimise the costs associated with travel for competitors.

During, and at the end of the Scottish meets, the results will be collated and shared within Scotland.  Later, in August, when the meets in all three home nations have been completed, all of the results will be collated and shared, with leaderboards published for each age group.
