GISM 2020 – CANCELLED


Due to the ongoing situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic the GISM Organising Committee regrets that we have had to cancel the 2020 Glasgow International Swim Meet, due for 29-31 May.

We have waited as long as reasonably possible but in line with the latest government advice about social distancing and self-isolation it is no longer socially responsible or feasible to hold the event. In addition, Tollcross International Swim Centre and all other pools are closed indefinitely, along with all swimming clubs in the UK no longer operating, and because staff and volunteers are no longer able to meet, the simple logistics of hosting the event are now not possible.

All being well, the event will return in 2021, with a provisional date already set of 28-30th May. Our sincere apologies to all those who were planning to attend in 2020 but public health and safety is obviously more important to everyone at this difficult time.

We’d like to send our best wishes to all swimmers, clubs, coaches and volunteers. By working together and following the public health advice we will all get through this and return stronger than ever.

INTERNATIONAL SWIMMING FOR A NEW DECADE!
