Club History - Masters Swimming

A Masters swimming section (for swimmers aged over 25) had been started at the CIub in the late 1980s and proved to be very successful with several swimmers going to Open Meets and winning medals as well as representing Sussex at Inter Counties. In 1991, former Club coach and President, Betty Rose (60-64 age group) broke the British 50 metres butterfly record at the Coventry Open Meet.


However, in the 1990s the Masters section came to an end only to return in the 2000s before again being disbanded but has recently been re-started in 2015 after a gap of a few years. The newly formed Masters section is open to any swimmers aged over 25 and the masters look forward to competing in Beacon colours at the 2016 Sussex Masters Counties and other masters events.
