Australia’s premier Para swimmers are set for a showdown in Adelaide with the Australian Para Swimming Championships confirmed for April 9-12 at the SA Aquatic and Leisure Centre (SAALC).
The Championships will also double as selection trials for the 2022 World Para Swimming Championships in Madeira, Portugal in June.
In what shapes as a blockbuster festival of swimming in Adelaide, the Australian Para Swimming Championships will also coincide with the Australian Age Swimming Championships at SAALC.
Swimming Australia General Manager – Paralympic Program, Adam Pine, believes the Championships will produce some outstanding competition.
“Following the move of the Australian Swimming Championships to May we worked quickly to find a solution for the Para Championships that would optimise the performance of our Para swimmers while causing as minimal disruption as possible to their High-Performance plans,” Pine said.
“It’s an important year of competition with the World Para Swimming Championships in June, followed by the Birmingham Commonwealth Games, and I have no doubt the incentive of these major international meets will bring the best out of our athletes in Adelaide.”
Information for the Australian Para Swimming Championships and the Australian Age Championships, including the program of events, can be found on the respective event pages. Entries for both events will be open from Monday February 21.
Tickets to attend the Australian Para Swimming Championships at the SA Aquatic and Leisure Centre will be available via Ticketek, with an on-sale date to be confirmed soon.
The 2022 Australian Para Swimming Championships will also be streamed exclusively on Amazon Prime Video in Australia and across 240 countries and territories, at no additional cost to Prime members.
