Competition News

Our swimmers compete in European, National, Regional and Local competitions in varying numbers throughout the year.

The English Nationals held in Sheffield over the last weekend in October each year tends to be the main highlight. The squad of ten who competed in 2018 brought home 3 Gold, 3 Silver and 4 Bronze individual medals as well as a Relay Silver. The time recorded in that 4 x 100m Medley Relay was the 7th fastest in the world for the Men’s 60 – 64 years’ age group!

Between them, as of July 2019, fourteen of our current squad held 43 Short course and 48 Long Course Beds County Masters & Seniors records over distances ranging from 50m to 1,500m. That reflected the breadth of talent and age range of our squad.

A great feature of all our competitive swim meets is the friendship and support shown poolside to everyone. Personal achievements however small or large are always acknowledged.
