Welcome to our midsummer England water polo club news!

June was another busy month.  The flagship event was of course the British Water Polo Championships, which took place over the weekend 18/19 June.  The venue was the spectacular outdoor Sandford Parks Lido, Cheltenham.  Unfortunately the weather wasn’t kind throughout, but it takes more than a bit of rain to dampen the enthusiasm for such a great event! There were 6 teams in each of the men’s and women’s events together with a band of hardy supporters.
