Training

2nd Dec, 2020

Difficult times ahead with Water Polo not being available for the foreseeable future and swimming becoming difficult to access in tier 3. Training currently resolves around running, gym and yoga. Hopefully we'll be back in the pool soon training!

Lockdown

23rd Sep, 2020

After a few months of getting back into the pool we've now been hit with new government legislation restricting our training abilities and the 2021 water polo season has recently been cancelled. Tough time for our sport but everyone is working hard to get things back on track. Training has been increasingly enjoyable and i am looking forward to getting back into gameplay!

Lockdown training

6th Jul, 2020

Its been a difficult 3 months in lockdown and the pools are still shut. I have managed a little gym work in the garden and a few runs and with the improved weather a couple of open water swims. Can't wait for the pools to reopen. Still no sign of any competition in the UK but a glimmer of hope with the EU nations internationals being scheduled for December.

Fingers crossed.

Coronavirus - training methods

30th Mar, 2020

With the onset of home working and training and without the option of using public facilities, my training methodology has changed. My sister has introduced me to Les Mills Grit, body pump and body combat in the garden or when its cold like today the living room. Grit is really hard!!!

Also been taking my daily exercise jogging!! or taking the dog out for a walk (see photo)

The season is cancelled and no international polo for the foreseeable future. On the plus side I have won the British League, which wasn't complete but nearly and the outcome as obvious as Liverpool in the Premier League

Inmternational club competition

7th Jan, 2020

After a short break for Christmas, I went to Sweden to officiate at a club international club tournament, the first time I have officiated at this level. Was asked to play for the host team Jarfalla for a couple of games. Great experience and really difficult to ;learn to play in a new team who don't speak English!! A few goals in the bag and a good workout.

Looking forward to the continuation of the domestic season and chasing titles.

World University Games

15th Jul, 2019

My second University Games and another successful event for me and the GB team. Really close matches with some of the best countries in the world and we finished a credible 9th overall. We also attend both the opening and closing ceremony as water polo is the first sport to start and the last medal event. Thanks to BUCs for their support of the British team and those who support me personally including LRS.

While I was away, my university team, MMU was awarded the team of the year by BUCS; another water polo success

Season underway and already success

13th Dec, 2018

After a shaky first couple of games in the British Water Polo League, we recovered well placing 2nd overall in Division 1 and a real chance of retaining the title. At University we remain unbeaten and are firm favourites to retain the title. Lots of pressure and lots of training.

As a bonus we hosted an Australian national team, winning one and loosing the other of the two matches we played.

Looking forward to the Christmas break then straight back into competition.
