Can Mount Kelly retain National Arena Swimming League crown?March 3, 2023
It started with 303 clubs and more than 12,000 swimmers – now the 2023 National Arena Swimming League will reach a dramatic conclusion this weekend.
Regional rounds held in October, November and December have whittled down the field and the remaining top 20 clubs are in Wales for the B Final and Cup Final.
The Cardiff International Pool will stage the popular competition once again with both Mount Kelly and Basildon and Phoenix aiming to defend the crowns they won in 2022.
Saturday 4 March sees the B Final – for clubs ranked 11-20 in the country after the regional finals – take place.
The following day, the 53rd National Arena Swimming League Cup Final with the top 10 clubs battling for glory will be held.
A host of junior and senior internationals will don their club colours over 42 events.
There are individual events over 50m, 100m and 200 Individual Medley, with mixed relay races adding to the points tally.
