International – Scotland at “The Games”
Originally the “British Empire Games”, then “British Empire and Commonwealth Games”, then the “British Commonwealth Games” and now the “Commonwealth Games”, these Games are the only opportunity for aquatics (Swimming & Diving) and other sports teams from Scotland to compete, in their own right, due to the governance structure of sports worldwide.
Since the Games inception in 1930, in Hamilton, Canada, Scotland has been proud to send the best of our aquatics talent to compete on the world stage. In turn, Scotland has been proud to receive competitors from Commonwealth countries around the world to it’s shores to compete at Games on home territory in 1970, 1986 and 2014.
Scotland is one of only six countries that have competed at all the Commonwealth Games held since 1930.
