Dear Water Polo players, officials, and stakeholders,

It’s been a very busy week with state trials, and a great opportunity for me to see the sport in action. Thanks to everyone for a great couple of weekends.

The formal squad lists will be posted on the website soon. In the interim, squads ...

Dear Water Polo players, officials, and stakeholders,

So, after 7 days and nights of rain we had 7 days and nights of drought and we finally have our office back to normal (with a carpet that is nice and clean after a thorough rinse)!

There is still a chance that the whole building will require a major renovation, but that is in the hands of the insurers and certainly at this stage I do not foresee any major disruption to Water Polo.

Dear Water Polo players, officials, and stakeholders,

When I started in the role of GM, I was made aware of a few challenges facing our sport. One of these was the shortage of pool space for our current and future programs.

Of course, WPWA does not have its own facility, but we almost got there on the weekend.

I arrived on Sunday morning to find a massive flood in the Royal Life Saving building and over 1 inch of water in our offices. Perhaps not suitable for a ...

Dear Water Polo players, officials, and stakeholders,

But now back to business.  

Go Go Polo 

No sport can function without the dedication and support of officials, and we are very ...
