In less than four months, thousands of athletes from around the world will descend on Cleveland, OH forGay Games 9, and Tsunami Swimming will be there, too! In fact, several Tsunami swimmers have already registered!
This is the first of several emails in the coming weeks to get you excited, get you there, and encourage you to swim with us (and have a blast!) at Gay Games.
Here’s the scoop:
- WHEN? The swimming competition is from Sunday, August 10 – Friday, August 15. Swimming details here.
- HOW? To swim at Gay Games 9, you must first register and you can do so by clicking here. Currently, it is $70 to register to swim.
- WHY? I mean, why ask why?! 🙂 Not only will you get to bond with your team mates, you’ll get to swim and socialize with thousands of other swimmers from all over the world. Yes, ALL over the world. It’s fun, it’s fast and a once in a lifetime experience. And, there are social events and parties each night throughout the week!

Currently, rooms with 1 king size bed, and rooms with 2 queen size beds, are going for a rate of $165 per night. Book your hotel room here today by clicking here and selecting ‘Aquatics – Swimming’ on the drop down menu to find this hotel and lock in the special Gay Games rate.
