Somerset Masters Swimming Club

Somerset Masters

You don’t have to be a ‘gun’ swimmer to join the Somerset Seahorses. However, Somerset is not a learn-to-swim club. We are a club that caters for people who can already swim, and provide an environment in which they can improve this skill, and maintain/develop fitness in an enjoyable manner (fun and friendship).

Anyone 18 years or older with an interest in swimming for fitness and fun is welcome to come along and join.

Age is no barrier. Swimming is one of the few sports you can actively participate in throughout life. We have members from 18 years of age into their 90s.


Somerset Facebook

Somerset Masters is a Healthy Club.  We promote a smoke and drug free environment, adequate protection from the sun, a safe environment in which to participate in activities and healthy diets.
