Water Polo U13s London League debut

A tight knit team of 7 played their first tournament in Division 2 of the London League on 22nd April. The first game was a bit of a shock as it was their first time playing in a 25m pool. However they adjusted and improved through the four games. In spite of having no substitutes they saved their best match until the end and beat coach Justin’s old club by a goal.

Loss Latymer 1 – 6
Draw Watford 3 – 3
Loss Northampton 2 – 5
Win Penguin 2-1


Congratulations to:


Big thanks to the parents for all their support too.
