A bit about us

Tuam Masters Swimming Club was founded in 2007; we started with just two lanes in what was the old Swimming Pool in Tuam.

A group of like-minded swimmers who were swimming together for a few years decided that Tuam was an ideal place to start a masters Club.

10 years later we are one of the biggest Masters Clubs in the West with over 60 members.

We now have three coaches on the deck every Sunday, two of whom are long distance open water swimmers and experienced gala swimmers who have both competed in Masters swimming, triathlon and iron man competition, our third coach is one of the most experienced adult beginner coached west of the Shannon and has thought many people who never thought they would swim all the way up to competing in National Championships and Open water racing.

When we meet

We meet on a Sunday evening and have two sessions one from 7pm – 8pm and one from 8pm to 9pm. The 7-8 pm session is aimed towards beginner swimmers to experienced swimmers. So if you would like to join come along on a Sunday evening and join up. We train in 6-week blocks, for 2017 these blocks are as follows.
