First of the month, and it’s time for some England Water Polo good news! -

Welcome to our October Club News!

This month marks the end of the summer holidays, the return to serious training and the start of the new British Water Polo League season.

As part of their warm up for the new BWPL season a number of the elite English women’s clubs competed in the EU Nations Women’s Water Polo Cup hosted by the Czech Water Polo Federation in Prague.  City of Liverpool led the way taking silver position, Otter took bronze and City of Coventry came in 8th.  A great weekend of quality polo played against top competition.  The weather wasn’t bad either!
