image002For the first time there is now a formal history of Masters Swimming in New Zealand.  Nowhere, that we are aware of is there anything similar in any other English-speaking country that records the rise of Masters Swimming.

During the author’s six-year term as President of New Zealand Masters Swimming (2005-2011) Roger Eagles noted that many of the original members were aging or had died and it was important to capture their stories.

This book contains an interesting mix of anecdotes and photos about events, people, clubs and the organisations activities, local and international.  It includes some of the more important events in the history of the organisation from its early beginnings in Matamata in 1973 through a 40 year period to 2013. Contents have been sourced mostly from “MasterScrawl” the organisations newsletter/magazine; interviews with members; snippets from the Minutes of the Annual General Meetings; Executive Meetings and clubs histories and newsletters.

It’s a great read for anyone who has been or is currently involved with Masters Swimming, not just in New Zealand, but in general swimming circles worldwide.
