Swim Wales has chosen the Wales National Pool in Swansea to become the new Welsh Swimming National Performance Centre.

The pool will act as a hub for elite and performance swimming in Wales and will also include cater for disability swimming. As part of the developing the pool as a hub, renowned coach Billy Pye will join the coaching team.

As well as the elite squads, the Welsh Swimming National Performance Centre will also be the home to Swansea University Swimming and City of Swansea Aquatics.

The move has been jointly funded by British Swimming, Swim Wales and Sport Wales.

Martyn Woodroffe, Swim Wales national performance director, said: "We can now invest directly in our own structure, which gives us greater flexibility and the opportunities of developing more Welsh swimming talent.

"We will also fit with the British pathway so we feed athletes into the Great Britain system and provide the best possible training and coaching for those capable of winning medals at the very highest level."
