What is Masters Swimming?

Masters Swimming is for swimmers who have reached the grand old age of 25 but still feel that they want to continue swimming for their own reasons.

We have swimmers aged 25 to 55. We have novice swimmers to ex-international swimmers. 

It's not about being the best. It's not about competing all the time. Masters Swimming is about achieving what you want to achieve. 

A personal best time that is only 10 seconds slower than you did 10 years ago
Beating your son/daughter over 50 metres freestyle, or any stroke you think they are good at (well maybe?)
A good night out
Social nights 
Fund raising
Weekly training 
Regular competitions, we even go to the Masters World Championships every 2 years

Hinckley Masters do all this and many other things as well. Its all for fun!
