Food & Entertainment
Short Course will also see the return of Centre Lane, a food and entertainment precinct which had fans raving at the Hancock Prospecting Australian Championships in Brisbane.
Adelaide’s finest food trucks, beverages and coffee will be on offer, so too will the COON Cheese Toastie truck together with plenty of activity for adults and kids to kick back and relax during the sessions.
See your favourite swimmers
Fresh off the back of the FINA World Championships in Budapest, gold medallist Emily Seebohm, six- time medallist Emma McKeon and silver medallist Mack Horton will line up behind the blocks for a shot at a national short course title and bragging rights heading into a busy swimming season in 2018.
After taking the year off to re-focus and refresh, former short course world record holder and current Australian record holder Cate Campbell will join her teammates alongside sister Bronte; so expect some fast times in the women’s sprint events.
You will also get the chance to see your favourite Para swimmers as names like Monique Murphy and Matt Levy dive back in the water after just returning from the World Championships in Mexico.
With heats from 11am and finals from 7pm (SA time), this will be one of the last opportunities to see the Dolphins swim live before they race for selection for the Commonwealth Games Team in February next year, so hurry, get your tickets now.
