waterpoloTuesday 18th July and Tuesday 25th July
7:00pm-8:30pm Tollcross International Swimming Centre

Water Polo matches are played in swimming pools with two teams, each with seven players (six outfield player and a goalkeeper) and six substitutes. The concept is very similar to football - there are goals at each end of the pool and the winner is the team who has scored most by the full time whistle. Play is divided into quarters, each eight minutes in duration. Water Polo is a physically demanding game - nobody is allowed to touch the bottom while the game is in play and players can cover around three kilometres in a match.

All members aged 10-17 years old are welcome to come along to the taster sessions.

Please sign up for the sessions by emailing: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The orders from SNAGS have arrived and can be collected from Gillian Bryce at Tollcross on Tuesday evening (27th June).
