This weekend the 3 time national champions did it again and retained their British Water Polo League title. It was won with a tense 5 – 5 draw against Manchester in the final of the Super 5s at Ponds Forge in Sheffield.
Sandford Parks Lido are extremely proud of the success of Cheltenham Water Polo Club and its association with the lido which stretches all the way back to 1935 when the facility first open. Throughout the years many of the players have worked at the lido and currently our very own Swim School Coordinator, Adam Legge is part of the winning team.
During the lido season the club trains and plays matches on Monday and Wednesday evenings and on Sunday mornings. If you want to come a watch the national champions in action or perhaps consider joining the team then come along. There is a full junior section that trains and competes both locally and nationally and this is perfect for youngsters who wish to get a taste of the sport.
Exhibition matches take place at the lido throughout the season and the best way to keep up to date on the clubs activities is to join their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/CSWPC.
In the meantime the next opportunity to see the champions in action will be at GL1 in Gloucester on Saturday 5th March as they begin their defence of the British Championship which is the equivalent of the FA Cup in Water Polo.
