An exception exists for the women’s 1500m freestyle; those without an accredited time at 1500m, but who meet the consideration time for the 800m event may enter the 1500m. All swimmers must provide an entry time for the 1500m.

Relays can be entered as well .

Entries from individuals can ONLY be submitted on the individual entry form available from our website. Please indicate if the time submitted is a short course time of long course time. The Nicosia Grand Prix entry secretary will convert any short course times for seeding purposes. This is provided for clubs or teams that are sending only one swimmer to the event. Reflecting the additional time needed to process individual entries, the closing date for individual entries is a few days earlier, on Wednesday 16th of April.

No refunds will be given after acceptances are published or for entries submitted out with the consideration times.
Fees for rejected entries will be returned to clubs during the event.
