May is shaping up to be a busy and bountiful month for the city of Windsor.

Five high-profile events will dominate the pool at the new Windsor International Aquatic & Training Centre starting with this weekend’s Amanda Reason Invitational and its expected field of almost 1,000 swimmers.

The facility will host several hundred more competitors for the Dive Ontario 2014 Summer Provincials May 9-11. Nearly 1,000 hit town May 16-19 for the Canadian Masters Swimming Championships and another 700 are expected May 21-15 for the Ontario Open Age Group Synchronized Swimming championships.
