About Us

Tennessee Aquatics Masters Swimmers is a club for lap swimmers, fitness swimmers, triathletes, and competitive swimmers. Our team includes students, UT faculty and members from the greater Knoxville community. We are a registered club team with United States Masters Swimming, a national organization with more than 60,000 members which helps to promote lifelong fitness through the sport of swimming.

Our club is open to any members 18 and up, and currently includes members who are between 20 and 80 years of age. Our schedule allows for multiple opportunities for swimmers to join us at the Allan Jones Aquatic Center on The University of Tennessee campus throughout the week.
