The City of Oxford Swimming Club’s Masters Squad offers professionally coached, competitive swimming opportunities for adults living across Oxfordshire.

Our friendly squad caters for people between the ages of 18 and 80 years, who have a wide variety of ‘lane’ swimming abilities. Some members compete in pool-based swimming events on a local to international level, while others train for triathlons, open-water swimming or just general fitness.

Squad membership provides opportunities to meet new people both at training sessions and various social events throughout the year.
