The A final will be held in the newly opened Aurora Aquatics & Leisure Complex in Bangor. Donna Mc Guinness, Events Manager, Swim Ulster said “A prestigious final needs a prestigious venue so we are very excited that the Aquasprint A final will be held in the newly opened Aurora Complex in Bangor. This is a chance to give our youngest swimmers an opportunity to swim in the first 50 metre pool in Northern Ireland and we hope this encourages them to stay on the competitive swimming pathway. Good Luck to all swimmers who are competing”.

Andrew Hollywood, Marketing Manager of the Bangor Aurora Aquatic & Leisure complex noted “We are delighted to host the Forest Feast sponsored Aqua Sprint Junior Swimming League. Our main pool is truly inspirational and when set up in competition mode, with a full crowd cheering the swimmers on, it is hair raising. We are calling for spectators to support their local teams during the final and enjoy the atmosphere. Good luck to all those taking part”.

Deirdre Burns, Forest Feast Marketing Manager stated “Forest Feast is delighted that these young swimmers will get the opportunity to experience the fantastic Aurora complex at such an early stage in their swimming careers. The Forest Feast sponsorship aims to encourage more children to participate in competitive sports while making the association with healthy snacking. This boost for these swimmers at grassroots level will hopefully encourage them and their peers to continue on in competitive swimming as they progress.”
