Swim England confirms its membership fees for 2021 have been frozen

Swim England has frozen its membership fees for 2021.

The recognised national governing body has confirmed that there will be no increase to its element of the annual fees to help support its affiliated clubs and members that have faced ‘extreme difficulties’ during the coronavirus pandemic.

Category 1 members will pay £9.20, the Category 2 price remains at £27.75 while the Category 3 fee stays at £5.20.

Swim England also collects the fees on behalf of regions and counties and these will be confirmed in due course.

Clubs with any queries about this element of the fees should contact their regional or county representatives.

Jane Nickerson, Swim England chief executive, said: “We recognise the extreme difficulties our clubs have faced during the coronavirus pandemic which is why we have taken the decision to freeze our element of the membership fees for 2021.

“Our clubs are the lifeblood of our sports and although we have had to adapt our way of working this year, we remain committed to providing a strong support service to them.

“We’re working hard to ensure competitions for all our disciplines will take place next year and are hopeful that our sports will bounce back in 2021.
