Over the weekend of the 23rd-25th of October 2015 an array of senior swimmers aged 19 and over descended on Ponds Forge in Sheffield for the annual Masters Short Course Nationals. The event comprises age groups of 19-24 years, 25-29 years and so on up until the current highest age grouping of 100-104!!!!!! Alongside this there are relays for age groups totalling 100-120 years, 120 years + and 160 years +.

UBSC's own Head Coach Jez was in action in the 4x100 mens freestyle relay, alongside his team of senior swimmers representing the United Bristol Swimming Club - all sponsored by Swimpath and their exciting range of Hammerhead kit (visit the SwimShop to order yours!!)
