Thanks again to the Star Hotel (https://www.thestarhotel.com/) for hosting and David Greenaway for running our Timekeeper training this week. And thanks to the parents who have volunteered for this essential training.

James Mactavish CSSC MASTERS

The South East Regional Short Course Masters was almost a non-starter for 2019. Calendar clashes with various local events and domestic club championships stretched officials across all counties, but thanks largely to some fine efforts from outgoing Swim England South East Masters Co-ordinator Geoff Stokes, enough volunteers (including competitors themselves) stepped up to grab a stopwatch and keep this important event in the discipline's diary running for another year! As far as Southampton Masters was concerned however, it was a bit of a contrasting tale. With the event opening so...

2018 saw Southampton Masters make history by taking the Hampshire Aggregator Cup Trophy for the first time in its near 25-year history. To have the Club name engraved upon the venerable piece of silverware is quite an achievement, given the past decade has been dominated by the force of Basingstoke Bluefins - a shred of Red amongst an otherwise sea of Blue!  2019 did see a few rule changes...25m races no longer carried points, and the revered Top Man and Woman trophies required at least three competitors per age division in...

The annual Masters pilgrimage to one of the three Nations of Great Britain saw City of Swansea host this year's National Masters Long Course Championships - with the Welsh Performance Centre the venue. Fresh in the minds of several competitors was the drawn out days of 2014 when Swim Wales last entertained this growing division of swimming....an 8 lane pool severely over-subscribed and resulting in races stretching into the late hours of the evening! A remedy was certainly required this time around.  That remedy did come at a cost. A new...

Fareham Nomads Masters have certainly been making an impact over the past few years – taking British, European and World Records, swelling in membership and hunting the traditional two-horse Top Club race between Southampton and Basingstoke down fast at Hampshire Masters Championships.  27thApril saw the peripheral suburb host its second Masters Meet at Waterlooville Leisure Centre. Last year The Quays played host, and drew attention from across the South East and London…and whilst the change to a somewhat isolated venue, together close proximity to Easter, did impact overall attendance, quality...
