Artistic Swimming

You might know it as Synchronized Swimming, but in 2018 FINA changed the name to Artistic Swimming. Same sport, different name.

Artistic Swimming

For the first time ever EuroGames and WorldPride have merged into one global mega event – Welcome to Copenhagen 2021!

When you sign up as an athlete for EuroGames, you will automatically be part of Copenhagen 2021, meaning you are signing up for a lot more than sports.

We are offering you a program packed with sports, culture, human rights, social events, parties, and Pride.

You will be part of a unique experience, including professionally-organized tournaments, a grand EuroGames Opening Ceremony where you will take the stage alongside thousands of other athletes, the chance to witness a remarkable show, and running the Mile of Pride. You will get access to our Sports Village, and you will have the opportunity to participate in many extraordinary events throughout your stay. This includes joining the WorldPride Parade with all the EuroGames athletes and around 60.000 other participants while 750.000 spectators will show their support.
So we urge you to stay for as long as possible and we promise you won’t get bored! We are looking forward to seeing you at Copenhagen 2021 where #YouAreIncluded.

Practical information

The artistic swimming tournament will take place Thursday, August 19 to Friday, August 20, 2021 at the aquatic facilities of Øbro Hallen in Copenhagen. A more detailed program for the tournament will follow.
You can participate in one of following disciplines:

  • Solo
  • Duet
  • Team
  • Combined

In single disciplines you can participate as male-identified or female-identified athlete. In teams you can participate as male-identified, female-identified or mix teams.
For the Duet competition, you will be allowed to register a substitute, meaning you can register three participants all in all.
If you want to participate as a Team, you can register four to eight participants per team.
For the Combined tournament, we allow four to ten participants. If you sign up for the Solo or Combined competition, you will not have the chance to register a substitute.
All participants will be divided into age groups with 18 as the minimum age.
The artistic swimming tournament will be judged according to the FINA rules. You can find them here.
Since the official age groups of FINA start at 25, our groups will be extended by the AK18. The 18-age group covers ages from 18 to 24.


Registration opens autumn 2020. The participation fee for EGLSF-members is 90 Euros and 120 Euros for non-members.

The artistic swimming tournament will take place at Øbro Hallen in Copenhagen. Øbro Hallen was the first public swimming pool in Denmark and contains a lot of history with its 90 years of existence. The venue was renovated back in 2002 but kept in the original neoclassicism design and architecture.
The venue contains a 25-meter swimming and diving pool. It is 1,3 to 4,9-meter-deep and has platform boards at heights of 1, 3, 5, and 10 meters. Øbro Hallen has a great relaxing wellness area, which you can use against payment. It contains a spa pool, roman steam bath, light room, infrared sauna and much more.
The diving tournament will as well take place at Øbro Hallen at the same day. Next to Øbro Hallen, you will find Østerbro Stadion where track & field competition and dodgeball tournament will take place. In the neighborhood, you will find a large, public park called Fælledparken, lots of cafés, restaurants, and shopping options.
