Introduction to para-swimming competitions

From school-based competitions right up to the Paralympic Games, there is a wide range of para-swimming competitions available for swimmers with disabilities.

The first step for many swimmers is to compete in impairment-specific swimming championships, run by National Disability Sport Organisations such as British Blind Sport, Cerebral Palsy Sport, Dwarf Sports Association, Wheelpower and LimbPower.

These are the perfect place for newcomers to get a taste of competition, swimming alongside athletes with similar impairments.

If they are members of Swim England through a club, swimmers with disabilities will be encouraged to compete alongside non-disabled swimmers in open meets from the Swim England Licensed Meets calendar.
