Tamworth swimmers will have to wait to take on NSW country's best.
Swimming NSW have postponed the NSW Country SC Championships scheduled for this weekend in Sydney.
Swimming NSW made the announcement on their Facebook page.
"Swimming NSW have made the difficult but necessary decision to postpone this weekend's NSW Country SC Championships," the statement read.
"Whilst we understand all competitors reside in regional areas of NSW, with the growing COVID-19 cluster in Sydney, we feel it would be irresponsible to continue with the event under the current circumstances.
"Additionally, we want to avoid putting athletes and their families under pressure to visit Sydney during this time and of course we want to negate any risk for our members and prevent any potential spread of the virus to regional NSW.
"We understand the disappointment this decision may cause. We feel it is essential and the most responsible course of action under these circumstances."
The meet will be rescheduled to new dates to be announced.
