Masters swimming is swimming for adults. It encompasses the whole range of ability from casual fitness swimming to highly organised competitive swimming. To qualify as a 'Masters' swimmer one needs only to be over 25 years of age.
Masters swimming began in the USA in the 1970s when some formerly 'elite' swimmers organised a competition for adult swimmers. The sport has now spread all over the world. But although there are World Championships at the top end, the sport remains one in which all who want to compete can do so. The broad objectives of better health, better fitness, and the friendship between swimmers are paramount. There is no compulsion on swimmers to compete.
Masters swimming at Beverley Leisure Complex takes place on a Friday evening from 8:30pm – 10:00pm. At the moment the session is purely for training purposes & the session is coached by Dave Brant who use to train in his younger days with the British swimming squad.
Everyone is welcome to attend these sessions & have a go!
