Paul said he had not been in the pool since the Paralympics but was looking forward to taking part in his club's annual gala.
There will be three sessions each day. The morning session from 9am to noon will feature the senior heats and the disabled swimmers.
The second session starts at 1pm and will focus on junior finals.
