Entries for 2016 British Masters Champs open

Entries have opened for the British Masters and Senior Age Group Long Course Championships 2016, taking place at Ponds Forge International Sports Centre from 1 – 3 April.

The 2016 British Masters Champs is the biggest domestic long course Masters meet of the year and is the only chance for British Masters swimmers to compete for national honours in the 50m pool.

Last year’s Championships saw World, European and British records fall and with around 700 swimmers expected to race, we can look forward to much more fast and exciting racing as the event heads to Sheffield for 2016.

The closing date for individual and team entries is midnight on 9 March. Entries will not be accepted after that date.

Six individual entries per competitor

With a high number of entries anticipated for the 2016 British Masters Champs, there is a limit of six individual entries per competitor.

Should the meet or session still be oversubscribed, entries will be on a ‘first come, first served’ basis and, in such cases, a refund will be given for those events the swimmer has been rejected.

Individual events will be contested for men and women over 50m, 100m, 200m, 400m and 800m Freestyle, 50m, 100m, and 200m Backstroke, Breaststroke, and Butterfly, as well as 200m and 400m Individual Medley.
