A Very Hospitable Game

Brockwell Swimmers water polo squad ended the year on a high with another stunning game on Sunday evening (2nd Dec). The team took on its first (and last) non London based opponents of 2018 inviting the Addenbrooke’s Hospital team from Cambridge down to the Brockwell Swimmers winter training venue of St Joseph’s College, Beaulah Hill.

It was the Hospital team which scored the first goal within minutes of the whistle. However, Brockwell Swimmers were quick to respond and score a shot just a few minutes later.

All’s well, that’s Brockwell.

It has been another fantastic year for Brockwell Swimmers as summed up at our Annual General Meeting held at the Crown and Greyhound pub on Tuesday 27th November. Thanks to all the members who attended and for Councillor Becca Thackray who also came along to show her support for the club hiring the pool next year.

Return to Parliament

It was a fantastic turn out for the Brockwell water polo team for the third meeting with our friends from Parliament Hill. Having won a game each so far this year, it was all to play for yesterday evening at St Joseph’s College (Brockwell’s winter training venue).  With only eight players verses Brockwell’s mighty twenty, Parliament Hill gained a share of the Brockwell team for the evening to allow for both sides to have the much welcomed substitutions.  Brockwell’s coach Steve Baker was on refereeing duties for the evening, the whistle was blown and the game began.

The Brockwell Swimmers club continues to grow with over a one hundred members. Always keen to welcome new swimmers, they have introduced a FREE trial session for their Tuesday Swim Evenings at the JAGs Sports Centre SE24 or the Sunday Water Polo at St Josephs, Beulah Hill SE19.
