Warwickshire Masters

Warwickshire ASA is starting to organise a Masters Championships for late 2019.  The event will be suited to novice as well as seasoned competitors to maximise participation and times will qualify for 'Ranks'.


Would you be so kind as to consult your Masters swimmers as to their feelings on medals please?


We are aware that many people don't bother to collect their Midlands medals and others they have won, so the options being considered in no particular order are:


No medals

Medals for 1st to third only

Medal for first place only

A points system with an award to top points entrants.

Any other suggestion?


If you could come back with comments by the end of June it would be appreciated.


Regards Paul Welsh - Email

WASA Masters Secretary
