The report covers the water polo activities in the county for the period 1st October 2016 to 30th September 2017. As the majority of water polo competitions are played at the end of the year the report gives the full results of the 2016 championships. The water polo committee are hopeful that in 2018 we can complete all the championships earlier in the year, and so bring the season to a close within the calendar year.
