MASTERS

CMK

Who are we?


     CMKSC Masters is a friendly swimming club for adults. Its membership covers a wide range of abilities from the casual swimmer to the more competitive swimmer. Most of our members joined because they either swum in past, or were swimming at local public sessions. A "Masters Swimmer" is just a swimmer in the age range 25 to 80+, but the club also caters for younger adults above the age of 18.


     There is more information about Masters swimming here with the ASA’s full Masters website here.

Bletchley training - Thursday Evenings


     CMK Masters Swim Team has another session at Bletchley Leisure Centre on Thursdays from 21.00 to 22.00


     Rob & JR alternate taking the Thursday session.


     We have lanes 3 & 4.


     Cost £4, please pay the coach, if you have correct change that would be helpful.


     Make sure it is noted on the register that you have paid.


     As we have hired 2 lanes just tell reception you are from CMK Masters and they should let you through the doors to the changing village.


     Use the lockers which take a refundable £1 coin.


     We will start at the far (deep) end, away from the changing village end (quite shallow).


     There is a multi-storey car park behind the centre, which is accessed by turning left, just before the leisure centre.
