Welcome to Surrey Park Seahorses Masters Swimming Club
Surrey Park Seahorses is a Masters swimming club based at Aqualink Box Hill. The Box Hill facility has a 10 lane, 25m outdoor pool at which the club trains on Thursday nights. The club also trains at the Boroondara Leisure Centre - Balwyn (BLC) on Tuesday nights and Saturday mornings. The BLC facility has a 50m outdoor pool
We are a medium-sized club (about 40 members) whose members enjoy swimming for fitness and/or competition, as well as participating in a variety of social activities. Members range in age from early 30s to the mid 70s.
Masters Swimming in Australia is available to any swimmer over the age of 18 years of age.
The Club provides two coached training sessions per week (Tuesday & Thursday nights) plus Sunday intra-club competitions to track your progress. Other members also regularly gather for less formal training sessions (typically Saturday mornings at the Boroodara Leisure Centre - Balwyn) along with open water practice during the summer months.
Some members compete in inter-club, State, National and International Masters swim events. Others choose not to compete at all and use the Club's programs for personal fitness purposes. We have many members who participate in open water swimming competitions held over the summer months.
The Club is affiliated with State, National and International Masters swimming organisations.
Our Club's objective is to "provide a structured environment for improving swimming and fitness and to encourage the pursuit of personal goals in a friendly social atmosphere".
We welcome enquiries from prospective new members (go to New Members tab).
