About the National Summer Meet

The National Summer Meet is Swim England’s biggest domestic swimming event of the year.

The Summer Meet forms part of a swimming competition structure in Great Britain whereby the top ranked swimmers are invited to compete at the British Swimming Summer Championships.

The next ranked swimmers at Swim England affiliated clubs – or those who have chosen to be ranked as an English swimmer – are invited to compete at the Nationals.

The rankings are on swimmers’ performances at level 1 meets between a qualification window, typically between March and May of the same calendar year.
