Swim England East Midlands are proud to be holding the first Regional Championship weekend at Corby East Midlands International Pool this weekend.


Over Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th April the International sized swimming venue will welcome the best junior swimmers from across the region as they take to the pool in a variety of events, all looking to gain valuable experience. And there is a lot to swim for as some competitors are aiming to gain qualification into the British and Home Nation Summer Championships.


Both Swim England East Midlands’ junior and senior swimmers will be racing in the girls’ 1500m freestyle and boys 800m freestyle. These events have been added to the Olympic schedule for Tokyo 2020 and we are all excited to see them as part of the weekend’s Championships here in Corby.


Please be aware that public swimming and lessons will not be available however the gym and café will be open as usual.  For any further information on changes to the pool timetable please go to www.corby.gov.uk


As well as the Championships taking place Corby East Midlands International Pool is also taking this opportunity to undertake some necessary maintenance work in the Health Suite therefore the Health Suite will also not be available over the weekend.
