Swim England London Regional Swimming Summer Championships 2021 Update13 April 2021
Swim England London are delighted that swimming pools reopened on the April 12th and for over 18’s hopefully 17th May 2021
Unfortunately, because of the delayed return and the time available for swimmers to prepare, the Regional Swimming Committee and Coaches Forum have concluded that it will not be possible to run any Regional Championships in May and June 2021.
We know how disappointing this will be to so many athletes, coaches and parents but due to the restrictions set out in the government road map it will be impossible to hold a competition where swimmers had not had the opportunity to properly prepare.
However, the Region are actively working with Swim England and British Swimming to give consideration to an end of season meet in July / August as part of the Festival of Swimming, to give swimmers the opportunity to compete nationally, albeit within their locality.
We are waiting for further updates and guidance from British Swimming/Swim England and will keep you informed as soon as we can.
