This year's event takes place in the Wales National Pool, Swansea, providing swimmers with a competitive para-swimming meet in addition to a national classification consideration opportunity for those new to the sport.
From today (22 October), entries are open to the British Para-Swimming Winter National Meet, which returns to the calendar in 2021 after a year out due to the global pandemic. The long-course competition will be hosted by Swim Wales at the Wales National Pool, Swansea, across the weekend of the 11-12 December, providing a key meet on the competition pathway for athletes across the Home Nations - the likes of Tokyo 2020 stars Reece Dunn and Ellie Challis having celebrated success at the event two years ago.
Swimmers wishing to be considered for classification will need to enter online by 29 October 2021 to be eligible to be called for classification dates, which will take place prior to the start of the championships on Thursday 9 and Friday 10 December. Those wishing to learn more about classification can do so on the British Swimming website here.

Christopher Furber, British Para-Swimming National Performance Director, commented:
"British Para-Swimming is delighted that Swim Wales are hosting this year’s Winter National Meet in Swansea. This event has always formed a crucial part of our competition pathway and for many swimmers it is their first taste of a national level Para-Swimming meet. After several years in Manchester it was important to ensure this event was available to new hosts in order to promote and generate support for Para-Swimming in different areas and nations. Our sincere thanks to Swim Wales for their ongoing partnership with us and for running this year’s event which I know will be a great success!"
Ross Nicholas, Swim Wales National Performance Director, added:
"Swim Wales are extremely pleased and excited to be hosting this year’s British Para-Swimming National Meet at the Wales National Pool, Swansea. It will be a great opportunity to showcase national level para-competition within Wales and we very much look forward to working in partnership with British Para-Swimming, and welcoming para-swimmers from across the Home Nations for two days of exciting competition in December."
