Update 29th March

Please note, there is no Club training this weekend due to a Gala in Newport.

Last week saw a lot of Polo played by all ages at the Club. This started with the 1999’s taking on Swansea in Swansea, which saw them win 9 – 26, then the 2002’s took on Carmarthen at home and another win 19 – 5. Next to take to the water were the Junior Bristol and West team, who arrived in Exeter with only 8 members of the team. This match resulted in our closest contest with Exeter, a narrow defeat 13 – 11. The Seniors took to the water after this and again narrowly lost to Exeter 16 – 13.

All of these games saw some excellent individual and team performances, well done to you all for the effort and determination you all showed, keep it up.

RTC in Newport only Friday. 

There is a Gala at the pool this weekend, (1st April, no joke), so there will be no Club training over the weekend.

The Welsh Junior Men Swim Set takes place this Saturday in Swansea between 14.00 and 16.30, then there is the Welsh Water Polo Clinic on Sunday from 11.00 – 14.00. Don’t forget the academy session from 11.00 – 12.00.

We are waiting for confirmation, but we hope the next 2nd Team (Seniors) game will be against Hereford at 15.00 on Saturday 8th April (at home)

The 2nd Team fixture list is taking shape very quickly. We already have matches planned against Bradford, Hereford and Weston-Super-Mare, all on a home and away basis. As soon as I have a couple of the dates confirmed, I will send out an updated calendar.

Below is the diary, I hope it all makes it clear to understand:
