Got Game? Join Us for Water Polo Nights at Bayside
Water polo is a game in which two teams enlist their reserves of stamina and strength to battle it out in the pool. The object is to score the most goals for your team. Do you have it in you?
Hailed as one of the oldest continuous Olympic team sports, game play in water polo involves swimming, players passing the ball while being defended by opponents, and scoring by throwing into a net defended by a goalie. The game of non-stop action requires physical stamina and excellent hand-eye coordination.
Come join the game! Attend Water Polo Nights at Bayside Recreation Center on the second and fourth Friday nights each month from 7 to 8 pm. We provide the equipment, you bring the eggbeater!
New to the sport? Our Water Polo Nights are the perfect starting place. A qualified coach is on site each night to provide instruction and referee games. A session of water polo also makes a great cross-training exercise for triathletes.
A valid membership or visitor pass is required for participation, as well as three punches on a Group Fitness punch card. Participants must be 18 years of age or older. Contact an Aquatic Supervisor at Bayside for more information at 460-7540.
