Brockwell Water Polo this Summer

Brockwell Swimmers will be running four Water Polo evening sessions this Summer, 8pm to 9pm (after the pool closes) at the deep end of the lido. These aquatic antics will take place on Tuesday 31st May, Thursday 16th June, Tuesday 28th June and Tuesday 26th July.

Sessions are being led by the firm-but-fair coach Jim who last year somehow managed to transform a bunch of beginners into semi-convincing Water Polo players. Miracles can happen! These sessions are definitely for fun, rather than competition and all ages and abilities are welcome.

Play is from 8pm to 9pm, with post-polo drinks at the Prince Regent for anyone who wishes to discuss team tactics, or just have a drink. Hats, balls and goals will be provided. For safety reasons, goggles cannot be worn during play so for contact lens wearers soft disposables are an option. Also a warm jacket to wear during a short pre-pool briefing. Apart from that, all you need is your costume and a towel.

Cost is £10 per session (£8 for members) which covers the hire of the van, lifeguard fees and event insurance. Booking in advance is recommended to avoid disappointment, and block book all four sessions will also save you money.
