Festival of Swimming – Additional Racing Opportunities

Swim England East Region has conducted its review of entries following the closure of the Stage 1 Entry Process.

With close to 4,000 entries, events at the London Aquatics Centre are now full. The Region has identified, however, an opportunity for additional athletes to swim at Norwich, and is therefore introducing four development 100m events in Butterfly, Backstroke, Breaststroke and Freestyle. Please see the updated schedule on the Swimming Competitions page.

The events are open to swimmers aged 12 and over at 31 December 2021 who meet the consideration time (unchanged) and have not entered the same event in Stage 1 of the entry process. Swimmers can use times from 01.01.2019 to the entry closing date. The time must be on rankings at the point of entry and may be from Levels 1,2,3,4 or X. If too many athletes with the consideration time enter the events, the slowest swimmers will be rejected first.

Closing Date for entries is 10th July 2021 at noon. To enter – please follow this link:

Para swimmers who wish to enter these 100m events and meet the para consideration times, again unchanged, should email swimentries@eastswimming.org for details of how to do so.

Athletes may not enter the development events if they are already entered for the same event at the London Aquatics Centre. Swimmers may however enter the development events if they are swimming other events at the London Aquatics Centre. Please fully read the conditions for the development events before entering to ensure you understand the implications of trying to enter the same 100m event at both locations.

Please do not ask to transfer a 100m swim from the LAC to Norwich as it will be refused.
