A little about us

Gloucester Masters was formed in 1988 by Mike Phelps (our former chief coach who died 7/5/2009) to promote fitness through swimming and competition in Open & Masters events at regional, national and international fixtures (see Quick links below).

Membership open to swimmers aged 18 or over.  Competitions are in 5 year age bands.

Coaching & stroke improvement from Simon Cooper with assistants Megan Hartery, Craig Skinner and Anthony Davies.
