Swimming Rules

Date/Site Changes

Swimming Meets must take place in the calendar year they are scheduled, else will be void. Meet must take place in the same city, but not restricted to a specific arena or venue.

Minimum Length of Play

If an event does not conclude after the first heat begins, all bets will be void. Any heats where winners/qualifiers had been determined will be settled as normal.

Swimming Wagers

Bets will be settled on the podium position result, regardless of any subsequent disqualifications. If there is no podium ceremony, bets will be settled on the result immediately declared by the official governing body, irrespective of any subsequent enquiry.

If a competitor or team does not start a race or tournament then bets placed on that competitor or team are considered to be losing bets.

The final medal table declared by the governing body at the end of the event will be used to settle bets on how many medals a competitor or country may win. Any subsequent changes to the medal table will not be taken into consideration.

Head to Head betting

Where both competitors reach the final, settlement will be based on their finishing positions in the final. If both competitors are eliminated in the same round of a competition before the final, bets will be made void. Where competitors are eliminated in different rounds of a competition, the competitor progressing furthest will be the winner for settlement purposes. For example, where one competitor is eliminated in a heat, and the other competitor is eliminated in the semi-final, the competitor reaching the semi-final will be deemed the winner.
