The pool was very busy on Sunday afternoon with over 70 people turning up as spectators or participants for the water polo.
There were three interesting but very different games taking place, with mini polo (under 10s), the juniors (under 14s) and finally the annual old boys fixture for the SamRossDavis trophy.
This was donated many years ago as a way of remembering two prominent figures in Parogon Water Polo history….Sam Ross and Ross Davis.
A number of former players brought their children for their first experience of the game, with young Myers, Wills and Pickford prominent. In addition, there were the slightly older Whieldon and Ibbs.
The games were competitive and enjoyed by all and inevitably they were followed by a few drinks in the Museum pub with lots of reminiscing and ‘what if’ tales.
Thanks to Mark Ibbs for organising and to Geoff Kirkham and Tony Simms for helping on the day and throughout the season.
The junior water polo sessions are now on their summer break but hopefully we will see the large numbers return in mid September
