As a club we are very lucky to have a large number of very good swimmers. Behind those swimmers are a raft of rapidly improving swimmers who use the club sessions to great effect.
The club currently has a small number of swimmers who compete in Masters events and we would love to give all of our swimmers the opportunity to get involved and feel the buzz of competing in a swimming gala. Many of you have taken part in the club gala against Trafford Metro, and you will know that year by year we are giving them more and more of a challenge.
Masters swimming is not daunting or elitist, the events are open to all abilities from the very fastest to those with a more sedate pace. We can incorporate both sprint meets and long distance events according to your preference. It is a great focus for the Autumn and Winter months if you fancy a goal outside the triathlon season.
We are initially targeting a few events in 2014 and will add to this over time:
- North West Open Masters Sprint Championships - Blackpool 5th July
- Cheshire County at Macclesfield in 27th September
- 28th Arfon Masters Open Meet, Llandudno, Saturday 4th October
- British Gas ASA National Masters Senior Age Group Championships (25m) Ponds Forge, Sheffield, 24th-26th October
We have set up a Facebook page called MTC Masters Swimming, this will be updated with all the info you need including how to sign up for ASA membership which enables you to compete.
