  • All spectators and swimmers (including reserve swimmers attending on Relays Day) require a pre-purchased ticket via Ticketbooth; Spectators $7 (plus fees) and competing swimmers (free). Each ticket is for a specific section, row and seat in the grandstand which must be used by attendees during the event. Any coaches who wish to sit in the grandstand must also organise a Ticketbooth ticket (complimentary).

    The full grandstand will be in use for Relays Day and all Heats Sessions (Sunday - Friday), in line with current Qld Health guidelines (e.g. 100% ticketed seating), with almost 4000 seats available there will be plenty available to accommodate all spectators and swimmers wishing to attend.

  • Relays
  • Please keep in mind that each swimmer is only permitted to compete for their club in one age group team (i.e. 10yrs, 12&U, 14&U, 16&U) per relay format (i.e. Freestyle, Medley & Mixed). They may also compete in an Open team per relay format. Mixed relays must have two (2) male and two (2) female competitors in their team.


    For example. A swimmer may compete in the 12&U Freestyle Relay, plus the 14&U Medley Relay as well as the 16&U Mixed Relay. That same swimmer may not compete in any other age group teams, but may also compete in Open teams.


    Relay Changes (order and/or team members) will be accepted via online form up to 12pm, midday, Friday 10 December. After this point, any further relay changes (order and/or team members) must be detailed on a hard copy relay change form (available here) and submitted to the Help Desk at least 1 hour prior to the session start time. We understand that last minute issues can arise and encourage team officials to speak with the SQ Office or the Help Desk Official.

  • Eloise Gannon Foundation
  • Swimming Queensland is a proud supporter of the Eloise Gannon Foundation and their objectives.

    Amongst other goals, the Foundation seeks to raise awareness about the importance of early intervention in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest and especially the life saving impact of having an accessible Automated External Defibrillator (AED) at sporting events and clubs.

    The Eloise Gannon Foundation is once again providing Swimming Queensland clubs with an opportunity to win a Defibrillator package. The winner will be announced and presented with the package during the Club Relays on Saturday 11th December.

    More details available in this letter to clubs.
