Cerebral Palsy Sport held its National Swimming Championships 2019 at the Harvey Hadden Sports Village in Nottingham on Sunday 7th April.

45 swimmers competed in the annual event. All participants had the opportunity to swim five events over different strokes and distances.

There was a wide variety of abilities and ages at the event from 10 years old up to 54 years old. A total of 90 medals were given out on the day.

The Interim Chair of the Cerebral Palsy Sport Board, Peter Savage, attended the event and gave a very special award to Catriona Chung for becoming a new Young Sporting Ambassador for Cerebral Palsy Sport.

Lynne Wardle, also a member of the board for the charity, attended the event to present awards during the afternoon session.

The event was made possible with the expertise and support of our officials and volunteers.
