Masters swimming is competitive swimming for men and women aged at least 25 years. Competitions are normally organised in 5 year age bands i.e. 25-29, 30-34 etc, swimming all the main strokes, just as in club swimming.
Since the first UK open masters competition in 1972, this branch of the sport has grown dramatically and competitions are held at all levels from Club, County and District, to national, international and world events. Masters swimming is a more social activity than the open and age group events. Competitions provide opportunities to meet old friends and rivals as well as just proving to yourself how fit you really are and having a personal goal to aim for.
The 19-24 age group is now becoming popular in county and national competitions.
