Midland Masters 2017 - May 13th & 14th

New venue announced for this event. Now at The Pingles Leisure centre (not Leamington this year due to refurbishment work)




Please find attached information on a Masters development day.  I am circulating to all clubs because it was noticeable that at this years Midlands Masters there was a marked increase in entries from clubs that don't regularly have entrants, so better to tell everyone than miss someone out.

British Masters Sheffield 28th 30th October


Hello All


We are going to be a select band of swimmers in Sheffield this year with the majority of us being 'very very experienced swimmers' ok....'over 50'  is a shorter description ...alright   'old'  is even shorter.


Having looked at the timings of the relays and all your individual event timetables we have this year only entered 5 relays - the detail of which is attached.


Sorry Amber, Vicki and Alex not to have a fourth 19/24 age grouper to make up a team with you.


Jenny and Paul, sorry not have a team race for you this time around but I hope you are happy to be reserves (definitely not reserved).

You will see that some of the teams have 5 people named so it may be a case of time trials at dawn.


Please let me know if you envisage any problems.


With warm wishes to you all and keep well.




Midland Masters Leamington 1st & 2nd October

Relay Teams

Masters Go Mad in Mallorca

September saw a group of CHE Masters old, current and new attend the B.E.S.T. Centre Masters Training Camp in the build up to the Midland and British Masters Championships in October.

9 x 2 hour sessions in 6 days saw Kate, Hayley, Stevan, Craig, Fatima & new recruit Mike push themselves to the absolute limit both in and out of the water. A great time was had by all.




ASA Masters Championships 2016

Hello All Camp Hill Eds swimmers.

Hope you are enjoying the summer and good health.

The entries are now open for Sheffield - 28th - 30th October, Entry Details

I thought I would send you the link with the schedule and the event conditions so that you can start to plan and decide which events you wish to go for.  This is really to make you aware, if you aren't already,  that when entries do open you should get yours in quickly. In amongst the conditions there are the following clauses.

4.2 The Promoter reserves the right to close entries before the published closing date should the event reach maximum capacity.

4.3 Qualifying times may be used in which case swimmers entering an event will have had a time recorded on the ranking data base faster than or equal to the qualifying time set for that event and achieved in the previous 24 months

Condition 4.2 was applied at the GB Long Course championships earler this year and several regular competitors were caught out and could not swim in their preferred event.
Condition 4.3 has not to my knowledge been fully implemented at a GB/ASA Masters champs yet so I wouldn't worry about that one this year; The ASA would have published the qualifying times by now if that was going to happen.

Anyway - after all that - here is the link to the Event details

National Masters

Please let me know if you will be swimming at Sheffield with Camp Hill Edwardians and then any availability for inclusion in possible relays ... 4 x50m, 4x 100m  4 x 200m.

Enjoy the Bank Holiday weekend

European Masters 2016 London - Team News - May 25th-29th

We have a decent size squad (Team Sheet) heading down to London for this very large prestigious event. There is very little provision for spectators but we are advised that both pools will be streamed "live" on the LENTV channel. See... LEN - Dailymotion The stream doesn't appear to work on iPhone etc. as it needs "Flash Player" but works on PC and some Android devices. Hopefully LEN will publish detailed start sheets soon so you'll be able to see us all perform!

Keep checking 25-29 May 2016 - Masters Championships page for details - Good Luck everyone

Sunday 15th November 2015 –ASA Masters & Seniors  Intercounties Competition–Midlands heat – Rugby

Bernard Wills, Trevor Clark,  Anne Bourne, Kate Chase, Hayley Bettinson and Amber Coughlan were all selected to represent Warwickshire in the annual ASA Masters & Senior Age Group Intercounties Competition. This annual event is the finale of the Masters  competition calendar year and as always was keenly contested around the country.

28 counties  took part at different venues  throughout the country. Warwickshire comprehensively won the Midlands regional heat but was just 53  points short of taking National top spot from Yorkshire.

Trevor Clark,  as swimmer manager, yet again did a remarkable  job in bringing together top flight  swimmers ranging in age from  18 to 75 years to fill Warwickshire’s  allotted lane in every single event of the programme. This is no mean feat and he has masterminded many County team selections over the past decade producing  3 first places, 2 second places and a third place.

Between them the CHESC swimmers swam  18  events and helped amass  more than 25% points out of Warwickshire’s team total of 1553 pts.  An impressive contribution with some excellent and encouraging swims.
