Summer Meets - Latest Information

Message shared from British Swimming

At the start of next week, invitations will be sent out for the British Summer Championships, based on performances in the recently closed Qualifying Window. The full invitation list will also be available at www.swimmingresults.org for everyone to view.

This year we have introduced a short period where these invitations must be accepted. The closing date to accept these initial invitations is 17:00 on 14th June.

Entry will then reopen for the British Summer Championships on 16th June with everyone who was invited but not entered removed, and a new list calculated (with places offered to the next eligible ranked swimmer).

Entries will open to the Swim England, Swim Wales and Scottish Swimming summer meets on 17th June, which will allow for any changes made to the British Summer Championships.

We are hoping that by implementing this system we can ensure as many swimmers as possible can compete at the prestigious British Summer Championship as possible.

With the British Summer Championships 2019 on the horizon, details of clubs with qualifying relay teams has been published for the six day meet that will be held at the Tollcross International Swimming Centre in Glasgow, 23-28 July.

Please select one of the following documents to find out if your club has qualified a team for a British Summer Championship relay event:

14-16 Years Boys

17/Over Boys

14-16 Years Girls

17/Over Girls

ENTER HERE (Entries open Sunday 2nd June – link will become active then)

Acceptance will be by means of an online system. Clubs will be required to pay for their team entries electronically at cost of £26 per team. British Swimming will not accept Cheques in payment.

Clubs are requested to inform us as soon as possible if they do not intend to enter a team so that we can offer the place to a reserve team, to do this please email British Events.
