The club caters to swimmers who (for instance):

Masters Swimming Queensland [MSQ] has frozen the membership of the virtual club because MSQ missed incorporating the virtual team in the constitution, in its 15 years of existence.

Furthermore, MSQ is not seeing the benefit of a virtual team compared to all other State organisations and will retire the Barbarians by end of the year.

If you want to join a virtual club, the recommendation is to join any virtual Club from any other State except Queensland.

  • - Want to train alone, but compete in Masters Swimming events, or

  • - Cannot commit to a traditional swimming club, but want support, or

  • - Are located in regional areas and need to visit multiple facilities to train, or

  • - Want to test the waters before committing to a traditional Masters Swimming club
