Compete at the Swim England Masters National Championships 2019

Entries are open for the Swim England Masters National Championships 2019, which will be held at Ponds Forge in Sheffield from 25-27 October.

The biggest domestic short course meet in masters swimming features almost 50 events in the 25m pool, including 15 relays.

British, European and potentially world records are expected to fall over the three days, with around 1,000 competitors expected to be battling for medals.

“The level of competition rises each year, but it is the exciting atmosphere created by swimmers of all abilities that makes this one of the pinnacle events on the calendar.”
