The Meet Administration team includes over 50 years combined experience of running events including the 2012 Olympics and 2016 LEN European Championships.

  • The Hydro Pool is about a mile from the noted shopping facilities of Harrogate, where pre-pay ticket parking is available for the shops.  Parking at the Hydro is available and free, but may fill up closer to meet start time. Please do not park on the grass at the Hydro.

  • 'Safe Sport Away' guidelines - The Hydro takes safety very seriously, and Harrogate is a pleasant town. However, if you are bringing a group to the Hydro and need information to help with your routine risk assessment, then email webmaster@swimharrogate.org and we will be delighted to help.

  • We are always looking for help to run or competitions and in particular we are very happy to accommodate those who would like to officiate. If you are a qualified official or a trainee official visiting with your swimmers and would like to help then please contact Jane Deighton at: deighton.j@googlemail.com
