The report covers the water polo activities in the county for the period 1st October 2018 to 30th September 2019. As the majority of water polo competitions are played at the end of the year the report gives the full results of the 2018 championships. With the closure of Picton we have found it hard to get pool time this year, but the water polo committee are hopeful that in 2020 we can complete all the championships earlier in the year, and so bring the season to a close within the calendar year.
