“On the Ball with the GM” 5

Posted by:

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)!

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 ...
