Masters swimming encompasses the whole range of ability from casual fitness swimming to highly organised competitive swimming. To qualify as a Masters swimmer you only need to be over 25 years of age. Masters’ competitions are organised in five-year age bands, from 25-29 and upwards as required. The oldest age group result so far is from the 100-104 group! Most competitions also include an 18-24 Senior age group acting as a transition from age group swimming to Masters. And if open water swimming is your thing, visit the page here.
