Water polo making a splash

WATER polo, a fast-paced, action-packed water sport, has made its way to Warwick.

For an hour every Thursday anyone with the ability to swim and tread water is welcome to join in the social water polo competition at WIRAC.

The teams are made up on the night and players are given advice on how to play and the rules.

Aquatic co-ordinator Karen Peters said there were quite a few people getting involved.

"We have had enough for two teams but we are hoping to build on that," she said. "If we get more people showing an interest we would like to start a serious competition."

The games start at 6pm on Thursday nights and will continue until the end of September and start up again, after the school holidays, in October.

It costs $5 to participate.
