Water Polo U15 tournament results

Our U15s played in a friendly tournament in Croydon on Sunday the 24th. They weren’t at full strength due to a few players being ill, but they were in good spirits.

The first game was against Hillingdon Penguin who were quite strong and we lost 7 – 2.

The second game was against a weaker looking Barnet side, but by half time we were 5-1 down. The team knew they could do better and put in a really gutsy, and technically much better, second half to snatch victory 7-6.

They played well in the last game against Croydon B, but narrowly lost 5-7.

Well done to all the players. No more tournaments for a while now until the winter league starts.

First Competitive Win for Water Polo U15s

The U15s competed in the third and final tournament of the London League on Sunday 10th September in Croydon.

Results were:
Watford: Lost 0-6
Bexley: Lost 1-5
Croydon: Lost 2-7
Otter: Won 3-2

The team have done very well to get their first win. When we played our first London League Game back in May we lost 18-0. But they did not let this get them down and have hugely improved since then. This bodes well for next season when all but two of our players will still be eligible for this age group.


Congratulations to all the players!
