The World School Swim Championships Returns to London This Weekend

The World School Swim Championships Returns to London This Weekend

It’s almost here! The World School Swim Championships 2023 are set to take place this weekend at the London Aquatic Centre!

Schools from around the globe will make the adventurous trek to historical England to make a splash in a variety of swimming events.

There will be no shortage of countries represented at the games, as over 30 schools from more than 10 different countries will be taking part in this weekend’s events.

The highly anticipated opening ceremony kicks off the swim festivities this Friday with a special guest. It’s then time on Saturday and Sunday for pupils to dip in the same pool Olympians from the London Olympics 2012 swam in. 

We are proud to partner with Gulf Youth Sport (GYS) for this year’s games. The media organisation will be following Middle East schools throughout the entertaining weekend of sport by taking pictures throughout the event.

You can view all the latest pictures of the event by visiting the GYS page here.

Each school will look to swim hard to rack up as many total points as possible at Queen Elizabeth Park in order to secure The World School Swim 2023 Champions title.

The full list of schools participating in the exciting three-day youth international event can be found below:
