World School Games 2016

Trabzan, Turkey, 11th -16th July 2016

After a great deal of consideration and collating information from The Foreign & Commonwealth Office and other agencies, the ESSA have decided not to take part in The ISF Gymnasiade (World Schools Games).

Because of the recent problems in Turkey, at the moment we feel we cannot put the swimmers at any risk. Although it is regrettable for the swimmers the ESSA are investigating the possibility of staging an International in England in the near future.
