The Barbarians Masters Swim Team [QBR] is a virtual team, run by Masters Swimming Queensland [MSQ] to accommodate for swimmers:

  • - want to compete at Masters Swimming Events

  • - prefer not to join a physical "real" Masters Club

  • - prefer to train by themself, with friends or with swimmers not in a Masters Club
    - are unable to find enough swimmers to form a Club

  • - live far from an existing Club

Why join, because
we are

No more detail required!

The main purpose of the Team is to allow swimmers to compete at National and International Masters Events and Meets. Administration of the Team runs over the MSQ. However, everybody living in Australia is able to join the Barbarians.

Of course you can join any Masters Club, but why not become a Barbarians.
We may a virtual Team. However, we have a great Team Spirit.
