Calverton and Bingham Swimming Club held their 4th Annual Masters’ Open Meet on Sunday 19th April at Hucknall Leisure Centre, Nottingham. The day was split into two sessions and consisted of 50m and 100m events in all strokes including individual medley, plus a 200m freestyle event for both men and women. Mixed and single sex 200m freestyle and medley team relays were also held. Times achieved in the heats dictated both overall position and ranking within five year age group categories.
Steve Goodall and Adam March attended the event from MAD and competed across a range of events in the 50-54 year and 35-39 year age group respectively.
The day was well organised and ran smoothly with a relaxed atmosphere. All standards of swimmer were welcome across each age bracket making it an enjoyable competition for all involved.
Steve's and Adam's results can be seen here.

We are attending the Eckington Open meet on the 10th May 2015, we want to see a full team there, and we have selected this gala with the aim for new or novice swimmers to do an Open Meet that isn’t going to be too much for them. It’s a small pool, friendly atmosphere and we will have two coaches present on poolside for the majority of the day. It is also suitable for the more experienced swimmers and hopefully gives them some opportunities to get great positions and personal best times.
We actively encourage all development 3 juniors and club 1-3 swimmers to attend even if it’s only for one session. Eckington is approximately 50mins away we encourage parents to come and watch or to organise car sharing to help get a full team there. To enter you must complete a entry form that can be collected at club or printed off at the following link:
Swimmers select the races they want to do and enter their personal best time, if they have never swam in a competition before or are not sure of their time, just place no time in the box or ask your coach to time you to provide you with an estimated time to enter.
