Toronto Masters of the Universe (TMU) is the Masters’ Swim Club at the University of Toronto. The club has about 50 members, men and women ranging in age from 20 years to 80 years with varying ability and swimming background. Some choose to compete in meets organized by Masters Swimming of Ontario while some choose to complement their fitness routine with swimming.

Most practices are held in the 8-lane, 50 meter pool at the University of Toronto Athletic Centre located at 55 Harbord street (Spadina and Harbord) in downtown Toronto, a few are held at the 25yd pool at the same location. There are 5 practices per week. READ MORE >>>
