Compete at the Swim England Masters National ChampionshipsJune 1, 2018
At the Masters Hub, we firmly believe there are few feelings that match the buzz of competitive swimming.
The pinnacle of racing (from our humble point of view) is to compete at the Swim England Masters National Championships.
It’s the biggest domestic event in the short course pool where each length is 25m.
Competition is always fierce for medals in every age group, but it’s also a great event to work towards if you’re new to Masters swimming or returning to the sport after some years away.

The Swim England Masters National Championships (25m) 2018 take place from 26 – 28 October at Ponds Forge, Sheffield.
Entries opened on 13 June and close on Friday 5 October. Download the Entry Pack for full details of how to enter.
To enter the event, you will need to have met the Qualification Time for your age group. Read more about these below.
To compete in an event, you need to have at least equalled the Masters National Championships qualifying time for that event.
After reviewing last year’s event, the Masters Working Group took on board all feedback from swimmers in calculating this year’s qualifying times.
The times are slightly faster than last year, but the group feels this will still enable the majority of swimmers to enter while balancing the need to maintain the high standard for the event.
Your time must be from the past 24 months and must be recorded in the British rankings database.
