Swim England North West – Festival of Swimming

British Swimming, while confirming that there will be no British Championships or Swim England Summer Meet in 2021, have invited all English Regions and equivalents in Scotland and Wales to organise regional competitions, which will be aggregated to create a National leader board.

Swim England North West, after consideration, has decided to participate, even if there are still social distancing rules in place.

Please note that all content will be subject to adherence to all Government and Facility COVID requirements.


Event Details

The event will be held over three days; 24th/25th and 31st July 2021 at Manchester Aquatics Centre.

Draft Programme of Events

Ages as at 31st December 2021

The event is being delivered in line with the request from British Swimming and Swim England. The region will be adding 50m form strokes as an extra swim for those already entered in the session.


COVID-19 and Social Distancing

This competition is being planned on the assumption that some social distancing rules will remain in place for “high risk” indoor activities, such as swimming competitions.

If there are no restrictions in place, the number of swimmers that can be accepted will be adjusted accordingly.

Because of the uncertainty about the level of restrictions that will be in place at the end of July, there is a possibility that this event may not proceed as planned, and the event may be cancelled at short notice. Therefore we recommend that nobody commits to non-refundable travel or accommodation arrangements.
