There will be no public swimming or diving at Corby’s international swimming pool this weekend as it hosts the county championships.

The first weekend of competition was due to be held on January 28 and 29 but was unfortunately postponed due to a technical issue.

But now the swimmers have their caps and goggles at the ready as they prepare to battle it out this weekend on February 25/26 (Saturday/Sunday).

The championships will see hundreds of talented swimmers compete, featuring individual sprint, middle and long distance events as well as team relay events.

These events provide the opportunity for swimmers to gain qualification times for the 2017 Midland Regional and National Championships including the Para Swimming Championships.

This is the eighth time that Corby East Midlands International Pool has proudly hosted the competition, using the 50m pool for all events.

This year there are 13 sessions of competition taking place which include heats and finals with the fastest eight from heats contesting finals for each of the six age groups.

The Health Suite, Gym, Studio Classes and Cafe will not be affected by this event but the pool is not open to the public.

Corby Borough Council apologises for any inconvenience this may cause.

Admission to watch the swimming will cost £3 per session or £5 per day.

Events programmes will cost £1 per day.
