Welcome to our November edition of Water Polo News. It’s been another busy month with a lot of action in the British Water League – see www.bwpl.org for the latest news. In this newsletter we try to shine a light on other activities that are going on at club level. We hope you find it an interesting read.
Barnsley Swimming Club Water Polo is celebrating its 140th anniversary. The club has a rich history including being founder members of the Wakefield and District League in 1922. They celebrated the anniversary with a tournament comprising two Barnsley teams and teams from Morley Water Polo Club and York Water Polo. Sounds like a great event and congratulations from all at Water Polo News on achieving this great milestone!
