The final Masters Long Course Championships before COVID-19 lockdown took place at the K2 Centre, Crawley - that was back in 2020. The two years that followed saw Masters swimmers take to the wilds of open water swimming, try to adapt to dry land sports like running and cycling, and towards the end, sneak in a 25m competition or two if lucky! Any age will tell you that 50m competitions are always different, no matter what the event or stroke. The welcome return to South East Regional Masters Long Course...

The Inter-County Masters Championships was one such event that saw postponement during the COVID period of 2020, and the 2021 Championships came close to following suit given the challenges pulling teams together across the six primary regions that make up South East Swimming.

The South East Regional Masters Short Course Championships returned after its COVID-interrupted 2020 schedule with a new venue - The K2 Centre, Crawley - and a new look and feel. Whilst the Swim England protocols for safe-swimming in what is described now as the 'new normal' brought far more formality to this traditionally relaxed day of competition (whipping areas, socially distanced spectating and event a pre-event briefing for all swimmers and officials) the racing itself remained as strong and as passionate as ever, with four World, One European and Two...

After a near year-and-a-half absence, the Hampshire ASA Masters County Championships finally took place for 2021 at Mountbatten Centre, Portsmouth. A solid group of fourteen Southampton Masters made the short trip down the M27 to get some much-needed race practise in ahead of what is looking to become a packed final calendar quarter for the veteran swimmers with both Regional, National and Inter-County events all lining up over the coming months. Primarily, the County Masters Championships provides a great initial stepping stone to both returning and newcomer athletes to Masters...
