Brockwell Lido’s first Water Polo evening held Tuesday 7th July proved to be a great success. The event attracted a wide variety of swimmers; some experience in the game, and others complete novices like myself.
Brockwell Swimmers are holding a fun Water Polo Evening at Brockwell Lido on Tuesday 7th July, 8pm to 9pm. The emphasis will be very much on fun, rather than competition and all ages and swimming abilities are welcome.
Goals, Balls and Hats are kindly being loaned from the Croydon and Guildford Water Polo clubs, who will also teach us the basics of the sport. Once we've got to grips with that we'll then have a go at playing some games. Prizes for the winning team.
Brockwell Lido celebrates the Summer Solstice with an extra three hours of swimming on Sunday the 21st. The Lido usually closes at 6pm at the weekend but this Sunday opens at 8am and shuts at 9pm. Last ticket 15 minutes before closing. Come on out and we might even have the start of a nice sunset to swim to!
This Sunday the 21st the gym is open till 9pm but the spa closes at 8:30pm.
Brockwell Swimmers have been offered the loan of some Water Polo equipment from an ASA member who is keen to publicise the sport.This includes 2 goals, balls, those lovely hats and an explanation of the rules. Could be a laugh.
The evening slot would include a simple 10 minute introduction to water polo technique, then games of around 5 minutes each. There would be 7 players in the water, including the goalie, from a squad of 13. We need a minimum of 16 people, but ideally 25 or more so that players can rotate and rest between games.
