Christmas is fast approaching, and with this in mind it's time to start thinking about the annual Christmas polo tournament! This will be on the 6th of December at the sports centre from 5pm until 8pm with prizes afterwards on campus somewhere warm and dry.
This tournament is open to everyone in the club, including old boys - it doesn't matter if you're a pro or a complete beginner! The pool sessions so far should have familiarised you with the basics and there's a rules and tactics session at 3pm this coming Sunday (15/11/15) in furness LT3 should you wish to brush up beforehand!
Once everyone has signed up I will select teams of 5 (with the help possibly of the coaches and captains) composed of:
-At least one fresher
-Two more experienced paddlers
-One ref (if possible)
This is to make the teams as fair as possible.
This is a really fun way to get to grips with polo, so I'd really recommend that you come! (Really, I can't stress how much fun this tournament is)
As usual there will be graded points for goal-scoring depending on the ability of those who score the goals. For example, if Ruaidhri was to score it would be worth 1 point, whereas if any of those who hadn't played polo before were to score it would be worth 3 points.
Sign up below, and don't forget if you have any questions please ask. Sign up will close in approximately TWO weeks, so you have until then to get your names down!!
