Welsh Summer Nationals Online Entries 2017

Hi All,


Just a reminder that Open Entry for remaining spaces opens at 9am tomorrow (Friday 9th June).  This will be on a first come first served basis for those who achieve the qualifying time between 1st August 2016 and the closing date of entry (ranked time from 1st of August 2016).  All entries will close on Friday 23rd June at 1pm.  Swimmers are advise to enter all events they have qualified in.


Here is a link to the Welsh Summer Open Meet Home Page

Swim Wales Summer Open Meet 2017


Please find below a Guide to entering events for Welsh Summer Nationals via the online entry system.

Online Entry Guide

To ensure successful entries please go to the link below just before 9:00am, and follow the guide. Ensure you have your bank details available as your entries are not accepted until the payment goes through.

Here is some advice from Swim Wales;


We are aware of issues regarding the open entry page, please see the following points to avoid the system crashing:

- Do not refresh the page, once you search for your swimmer and the page 'freezes' to load you have been placed in a quee, each time you press refresh you are re-added to the back of the quee! This is often the cause of site crashes.

- The event is popular and spaces are limited, however most traffic on the morning of entries opening is due to users refreshing the page, try a little later in day or Saturday to avoid IT problems-there is however no guarantee that the event will have spaces.

- The system is not managed by Swim Wales, and unfortunately the office is unable to support phone calls regarding technical issues, please be patient with the system. 

- If you experience problems regarding membership please contact

- If you experience problems regarding times, qualifications or rankings please contact 

Good Luck
