Our April England water polo club newsletter is out! -

Welcome to this month’s Water Polo News.  It has been a busy month with British Water Polo League events dominating the calendar as teams fight for promotion and the Super5 competitions reaching their conclusion.  We have also seen the conclusion of the London Water Polo League and many local club events.

At the outset we would like to offer massive congratulations to the City of Manchester Water Polo club for pulling off a double Super5s victory for the third year in a row.  Both the Men’s and Women’s senior teams have played exceptionally well with the women dropping only one game in the whole competition.   The Men officially secured the title earlier in the month, but the trophies were presented to both teams at the event last weekend.  Very well done to all the players, coaches, team managers and everyone else who has made the victories possible.
