Masters Squad 21st Birthday

Declan Curzon-Hepworth

Congratulations to the Master's section of the club, which celebrated its 21st birthday on January 5th. The team was set up by Mark and Alie Patterson who are both still active swimmers, as well as playing significant roles in the running of the club. The numbers are currently nearly fifty members with a choice of  five swimming sessions a week , shared between Bingham and Cotgrave pools. Ages at present range from 21 to almost 70! There are several coaches who have level 2 or above coaching qualifications.

The section is an excellent model for younger members to aspire to as some masters regularly compete in local regional and even higher level competions. The Masters motto is " fitness fun and friendship" which all thrive within our group.

Thanks to Mark and Alie and here's to the next 21 years!
