The Club Awards evening is on 6th January, tickets are on sale at reception on NISV, please pick up your tickets, let’s get as many as possible to the Awards evening and really celebrate our year.

Last weekend saw the 2000’s and 2003’s in action.

The 2000’s won both of their matches, 21 – 4 against Carmarthen on Saturday, then 32 – 1 against Swansea on Sunday, well done to the whole team, a very professional performance.

The 2003’s put in a very spirited performance, despite missing one or two key players and others having to play out of position due to injuries etc, you all played exceedingly well and pushed Swansea the whole way through, the final score of 5 – 14 does not reflect the effort you put in.

There is no training in Newport this weekend due to Gala’s at the pool.

The Welsh League 2000’s competition should continue this Sunday (10th December) with Newport away to Cwm Draig, however, we have not yet had a confirmation from Cwm Draig that the match is actually on. As soon as we receive it, we will pass it on.

Next weekend (16/17 December) is a very busy one, with the 2nds taking on Swansea in Newport on Saturday 16th, then the 2003’s and 2000’s playing Wanderers in Newport on Sunday, good luck to all teams.

Weekly Update 29th November 2017

The 2nds took part in their first proper match last night and did very well in the first half, with the Half Times score of 5 – 4 to South Gloucester. The 2nd half was not quite so glorious, with the game ending at 14 – 6, but lots to learn and a great practice run for next season. This was not the fresh side we were thinking it was going to be, instead, there were a lot of fit young men in their team, who were physically dominant, yet still the 2nds did well, so lots to look forward to next season.

Training this weekend is at the normal time for the Juniors, Saturday 4 – 5.30, then the 2000’s take on Carmarthen in the Welsh League at 5.30 – 6.30, then Senior training from 6.30 – 8.

Action in the Welsh League again on Sunday, with the 2003’s playing their first match this season, against Swansea at 1PM on Sunday, then the 2000’s take on the Swansea 2000’s at 2.30.

Weekly Update 22nd November 2017

NOTE: NO TRAINING IN NEWPORT THIS WEEKEND

Let us start by congratulating both the Seniors and Juniors for their efforts in the Bristol and West Water Polo League this year.

The Seniors have not only stayed up in Division One of the league, which was their aim, but they achieved 4th place, (out of 8) which is the highest positioned team that does not also play in the British National League. Well done to you all, a great effort for your first year in Division 1.

The Juniors finished in their highest position since they joined the BWWPL, finishing 4th in the league, assuming that the BWWPL Committee awards us the points for Devonport cancelling on us twice.

The Juniors played and beat South Gloucester last Saturday in the BWWPL winning 20 – 6 in a game which saw a lot of pool time for the 2003’s and below. Last Sunday, Exeter arrived with only 6 players, the rest of their team being stuck on the motorway. We played anyway, giving Exeter 3 of our players to boost their team. This match resulted on another win for the Juniors 21 – 12.

The Seniors were due to play Exeter Seniors last Sunday as well, however they called off due to lack of players. The points were awarded by the BWWPL committee to us.

RTC in Carmarthen only this Friday. Carmarthen from 20.30 – 22.00.

Welsh Junior Men Swim Set takes place in Swansea this Saturday, for those invited to attend, and the Welsh Water Polo Clinic in on Sunday in Cardiff, including Academy at Clinic.

On 28th November, the 2nds team play their first proper match, against South Gloucester Men, in Winterbourne. this is exciting times for the 2nd team players, good luck to you all.

The following weekend, 2nd / 3rd December sees the 2000’s and 2003’s in action in the Welsh League, good luck to you all for your matches.
