OS water polo team impress in the pool!

Annual OS water polo tournament makes a splash on campus

Report from OS Swimming Club member: Steve Ross (GH,SHa, 65-72)

'The water polo tournament on 23rd October was like oxygen to the sport - we were unable to hold the tournament last year owing to the lockdown, and this time was the first tournament that any of the teams had competed in. It was also historic in that OSSC were there with three reserves, competed well and won a match against Cambridge University. Colchester bought along a referee and secretary/timekeeper with all the electronic compliments of scoreboard and shot clocks, which hugely contributed to make the day run smoothly

The tournament could have been won by any of the other three sides, and it was nip and tuck between Colchester, Ipswich and Enfield. In the end, Colchester ended up the champs, followed by Enfield, Ipswich, OSSC and Cambridge University. Highest goalscorer went to Enfield and best goal scorer to our own Nick Reynolds, who also arranged the tournament with Steve Ross. John Bauer (master BSC) won the Wiltshire trophy, a handicapped swimming race over two lengths
