Welcome to Copenhagen Open Masters 2024

Copenhagen Open Masters is a masters swim meet, and we are proud to this year be able to celebrate the 36 anniversary.  

The 36th COM swim meet takes place in Copenhagen, Denmark, 

  • Date: Saturday, 2nd of November 2024 
  • Location: Kastrup Svømmehal, Røllikevej 4, 2770 Kastrup

The swim meet is sprint oriented and has always been known for the cosy and relaxed atmosphere. Nevertheless, the meet does not lack in quality, and is visited by former Olympians and masters world record holders. The swim meet attracts masters swimmers from all over Europe.

The pool, hotels and the party location are all very close to Copenhagen Airport, so traveling to and from is easy.

Many participants considers the party to be one of the highlights of the swim meet. At the party, swimmers can mingle, watch the prize ceremony, and once the music begins, there’s dancing! At the bar, one can buy wine, soda and of course the famous Danish seasonal beer, Carslberg Julebryg (Christmas brew), released every year in November. All of course at very reasonable prizes.

Please note, it’s a requirement to be at the party, in order to receive the prizes won.
