British Summer Nationals & Home Nation Championships 2015

The new swimming competition structure announced by British Swimming is being implemented from 2015.

For the first time swimmers will be invited to attend either the British Summer Nationals or Home Nation events, depending on their ranking in an event, achieved during the qualifying window.

British Summer Nationals

The 2015 British Summer Nationals will be held at Ponds Forge, Sheffield.  You can watch a live feed of this year’s competition here.

These championships are for swimmers aged 13yrs and over (age as at 31st December).

Qualification for these Championships will be determined by a top 24 ranking per event and per age from the British ranking list from a qualifying window of 13th March – 31st May 2015.

Home Nations Summer Meets

To be held at Ponds Forge, Sheffield.

The Home Nation Championships will be for English/Welsh/Scottish swimmers aged 12yrs and over (age at 31st December).

Qualification for these Championships for our swimmers will be determined from the English ranking list from the same window as the British Champs (13th March-31st May 2015) for individuals who have not qualified in that event for the British Summer Champs.  The number of swimmers to be invited will be set by the Home Nation.

There may also be some further discretion around other qualifying methods, set by the Home Nation.
