The 2017 Hancock Prospecting Australian Short Course Swimming Championships are coming to Adelaide in partnership with South Australian Tourism. Tickets are now on sale for this action packed event HERE

WHAT WILL BE THERE?
Alongside all the action in the pool, Centre Lane will deliver all the action out of the pool. This unique space means you can 
kick back and relax with food, drinks, music and activities for adults and kids alike.  Our friends at COON are sending the famous Toastie Truck to make all our cheesy dreams come true. Head along to the Optus Fan Zone and decorate your own hero board and meet your favourite swimmers. Plus MKR's Tim & Kyle are sending their food truck to tantalise your tastebuds alongside Delectaballs, Shake Street and Green Elephant Coffee. 

So what are you waiting for?!

WHO WILL BE THERE?
Adelaide’s own Olympic Champion Kyle Chalmers will be there to compete against the best swimmers from across the country. 

Gold medallist Emily Seebohm, six-time medallist Emma McKeon and silver medallist Mack Horton will line up behind the blocks for a shot at a national title and are a sight not to be missed. 

Former short course world record holder and current Australian record holder Cate Campbell will join her teammates alongside sister Bronte; so you can expect some fast times in the women’s sprint events.

You will also get the chance to see your favourite Para swimmers as names like Monique Murphy and Matt Levy dive back in the water after just returning from the World Championships in Canada.
