Juniors First Match Monday 17th Oct

It has been a great start to the season and wonderful to see everyone braving the temperature of the pool and enjoying themselves. Newman Water Polo has doubled the number of teams in Juniors and Seniors since last season. As you will appreciate this means more coaches, more training sessions in the pool and lots of work for the Committee and Coaches. As a result there may be some teething issues and changes to training schedules so please be patient over the next few weeks.

Games start tomorrow Monday 17/10 and it is important everyone has registered or they cannot play. Register link.

Bathers have arrived so please arrive early to change into. You need to pay before you can collect so please see bank details below.

The team lists are attached and as mentioned these may change slighlty over the next 3 weeks. Team Lists
