For our swimming competition, we have reserved for you Belgium’s prettiest pool! Just like in 2016 we will swim at the Nekkerpool, in Mechelen, just 30 minutes outside the city centre of Brussels. In a green and relaxed environment, join us for an afternoon of fun and good vibes.
Registration is done individually. For practical reasons, swimmers can participate in maximum three individual events and in as many relays as they want.
Relay teams are to be communicated by the team captain before the start of the competition, prefereably by e-mail at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is requested that each swimmer preferably checks in at the Welcome Party on Friday evening. The participants who did not register before that time may be excluded from the competition!
