About Masters' swimming

Redhill & Reigate Swimming Club (RRSC) has a thriving Masters' section which trains regularly each week. A 'master' swimmer is defined as anyone over the age of 25 with no upper age limit.

Some of our Masters compete in various events around the country as well as in the annual RRSC Club Championships. Think again if you believed your days for winning sporting trophies were over! 

We are always looking for more members, so if you would like to get fit or are looking to compete, please feel free to come and try us out
