SWSC Masters is an active group of swimmers over the age of 19, operating under the auspices of Swim Ireland.
Masters swimming is generally recognised as competitive swimming for adults who are over 25 years of age, though all competitions these days are open to swimmers aged 19 and over. The focus of Sundays Well Swim Club Masters swimming is to participate in and enjoy the sport, build friendships, encourage a healthy lifestyle, improve swimming capability, technique, stroke & fitness, and to compete against swimmers of similar age.
The ability of Masters Swimmers varies considerably, from elite swimmers, triathletes, open water swimmers and fitness enthusiasts, to social swimmers and improvers. The emphasis, as with all swimming, is not on how your competition is doing, but on how you are improving.
The social side of SWSC Masters is equally important to us, especially after the swimming, with strong bonds and great friendships being formed.
SWSC Masters currently has 50 + regular members & swimmers. Swim galas are held in many centres through-out the country and abroad, with competition in age groups in 5 year increments, 19-24, 25-29, 30-34 35-39, etc,.(with 100-104 being the oldest age group for which world records have been set). Events usually conclude with a social gathering. Our own annual open gala, usually held in February, is a key calendar event.
