Compete at the Swim England Masters National Championships

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.
