Welcome to Belper Marlin Masters Swimming Club

If you are aged 18 or over and wish to gain better health, better fitness or make new friends through swimming, Belper Marlin Masters Club is ideal for you.

The squad encompasses a whole range of abilities from casual fitness through to highly organised competitive swimming. Everyone has his or her reason for swimming; health, general fitness, camaraderie or just for fun, how far you go is up to you.

Masters Training Times

We train twice a week at Belper Leisure Centre at the following times:

  • Wednesday evening: 9pm to 10pm
  • Sunday morning: 8am to 9am

Each session is supervised by qualified lifeguards and provides graded lane swimming for all ability levels.

There are a number of social events organised throughout the year and several members are keen competitors at various Masters Competitions.

If you would like to see if Masters swimming is for you please come along to one of the sessions where you will be made welcome.
