The National Summer Meet is Swim England’s biggest domestic swimming event of the year.

The Summer Meet forms part of a swimming competition structure in Great Britain whereby the top ranked swimmers in each event are invited to compete at the British Swimming Summer Championships.

The next ranked swimmers at English affiliated clubs – or those who have chosen to be ranked as an English swimmer – are invited to compete at the English Nationals.

The rankings are on swimmers’ performances at level 1 meets between a qualification window, typically between March and May of the same calendar year.

The 2017 National Summer Meet takes place from 2 – 6 August.
